 I finally had time to spend on the site and found Kevinís fantastic video. I knew much of the video content but to actually see it and hear the sound is very impressive, to say the least. This video is far from mediocre, Kevin.
 Thank you for the video.

PS.
 The locomotive sounds may yet induce me to move my preferred era so I can use newer locos and with sound modules.

RailPro Software Updates / LM-3S, LM-3S-G revision 2.12 released
« Last post by G8B4Life on June 14, 2019, 12:10:14 PM »
LM-3S-G v2.12 was released a week or so ago.

LM-3S v2.12 just released in the past couple of days.

No idea what fixes or new features are included.

Edit: From Rings website "These new programs add support for the unique Shay locomotive sound!", so there is also a new Shay sound out as well.

RailPro Discussion & Help / Re: Power Supply 56 and Keep Alives

I concur with Bill & Kevin. I  have both 'flavours' running on the layout - with and without Bridge Rectifiers. Some of the ones with are LM-2S, some are LM-3S. All new installs are without Bridge Rectifiers.

I've had no issues running the units together. If you are using LM-3S you can dispense with the Bridge Rectifiers!

Anyone have a direct hard wired keep alive using the Pwr56?  I know just enough to fiddle with things and be dangerous!

Follow the diagram I posted. No Bridge rectifier. Works perfectly and the power source is not an issue. DCC or DC, it does not matter, this function is built into the LM-3, and the unit will run with LM's using a bridge rectifier with Keep-alive, or an LM with no keep-alive at all.

Thanks for the info. and agree I should not remove the bridge rectifiers. I've completed a couple of tests last weekend using my old, old DC power pack with expected good results and Iv'e seen the under power warning on the HC2 handheld before.
Let me expand this question to future installs of the LM3-S. For space and simplicity reasons, I don't want to install bridge rectifiers in any more loco's if the keep alives can handle the direct from rail DC PWR56 current. Anyone have a direct hard wired keep alive using the Pwr56?  I know just enough to fiddle with things and be dangerous!

You do not need to remove the Bridge Rectifies to use a PWR-56, but you may get under voltage warnings.

The correct way to wire a keep-alive in any locomotive with an LM-3 is as follows:

I'm not the expert here but you ought to keep the bridge rectifiers in place.  I run TCS keep alives with bridge rectifiers, powered by the PWR-56.
