|I should have added ...
... That a 'Solid State Relay' would be ideal, as opposed to the old 'clunky' mechanical types.
These are available for a $1 Buck a bag on eBay of course ...
... So no great expense for specialised & difficult to get parts.
It is a simple circuit & could be made in a VERY compact package if needed.
The 'Schottky Diode' however, with it's absolutely MINIMAL 'Forward Voltage Drop' ...
... is still the simplest option, for trains powered on 7.4 or 11.1 or 12 Volts etc.
Some of the 'Shottky Diodes' available today, if you look, drop only a TINY fraction of a Volt ...
... high current is 'the norm' in terms of what is available, using one rated at 3x your battery Voltage is sensible.
