|Rick, Bob and Rod,
I wouldn't say I know Geren but we were in a Yahoo group together many years ago,
when a lot of us were figuring out what an On30 module should look like.
I know he is a great guy.
I just didn't know if he was the only US source.
Rick and Rod, thanks for the alternate source.
Their site is very interesting and it is always good to have more than one source available.
Bob, thanks for the extra info.
I think I may steal your ideas almost completely, except I'll probably use a Banta all-weather cab instead of the oil tank,
since my locos are all wood or coal burners and my talents don't lend themselves well to fabricating an oil tank from scratch.
Do you remember what voltage step-up regulator you used?
I was thinking the 9-volt would probably be about right.
I do wish Geren carried the RX62 since it would be easier to have a latching reed switch,
rather than keeping the magnet in proximity to the switch.
