Hello Everybody,

My name is Allen and I recently discovered that my childhood love for trains never went away. I am currently planning a HO layout which I will be building in sections. I have the opportunity to fill a 24x36 basement, but want to begin smaller as to not overwhelm myself. After doing many months of research, I decided that Railpro is the system I would like to use to run my layout.

I look forward to learning from and getting to know everyone on here.

Allen

Welcome to the forum Allen. You and I have a lot in common - first name, reason for trains, scale, basement size, RailPro. You may want to scroll through the posts on my blog for ideas. http://www.lkorailroad.com/

RailPro Discussion & Help / Re: PIKO turnout

A link would have been good in this instance...

I presume you are talking about Piko 35271 (https://www.piko-shop.de/index.php?vw_type=artikel&vw_id=4450&vw_name=detail)? If so the AM-1 should be able to control it directly, the Piko instruction sheet states the coil is 0-24v DC (48VA) which unless I have my nomenclature wrong and that doesn't mean 0 to 24v DC, seems to be within the specs of the AM-1. You'll need to be mindful of the the coil resistance (as it's not stated in Piko's instruction sheet) as per the AM-1 user manual.

If I am wrong in my thinking and you do need the full 24v to operate the coil you could use the AM-1 to control a 24v Capacitor Discharge Unit which would definitely operate the coil, some here have done similar using the AM-1 to control a board that operates the coils on a switch machine.

Will an AM-1 control a PIKO electric drive for a turnout?   I know it works on LGB drives.

After a month of inactivity due to health, I finally telephoned Tim Ring and he solved the problem in about two minutes. Seems I did not have a problem to begin with, I got things out of sequence and when Tim talked me through it, it made sense.
Getting old is not for sissies! Try, try again (then call Tim).
