First install. Railpro with two custom horns.
« on: March 27, 2021, 04:53:16 PM »
First partial install. I havenít wired lights. I havenít put in a charging port. This is just  motors and sound.

Couple notes. First horn is a custom looped sound I found on the users group.   The second horn is a custom one I made today. Itís a long file with four blasts.

The engine will start much more smoothly and slowly. I had camera in one hand and remote in another. Thatís user error. The motor control is good.

Thatís a nice layout, David. The horns sound great. The installs will become easier as you do them.

Run your train, not your brain. Get RailPro. It's a no-brainer.

I think the horn is great.  Which prime mover sound did you use?  Yes, motor control is very good.  You can futz with accel, start voltage and load to make starts simple.

@HuffDuff9,

I moved your question to it's own topic here:https://rpug.pdc.ca/index.php/topic,1244.msg9398.html

Sounds like you have the GE 7FDL-16 Early ULT file on there.  That would be correct for U-boats and dash 7's but not much else.  The closest one to your model would probably be the EMD 710 ACE ULT.

David,

Nice Install and nice to see you again on another user group.  Trust me I'm not stalking you.

I decided to jump into the RailPro pool too.  My system arrives Tuesday.  Not much info on O gauge is out there.  Any hints or suggestions?  Do you have any pics of your setup you could share?

Are you running track power or battery power?
