Herb,

Did I read someplace (I have searched but can't find it now) where I think you said you were converting to catenary and would use RC and the BPS to recharge your Battery (?)

I have just bought three Tatra T3 kits in "O" scale but I am building mine for On30. The prototype ran with a Pantograph and the kit comes with one.

For a look at a really good picture of the Tatra T3:

Will you talk about building a Catenary system and how you will wire for the BPS?

As for the BPS my first thought would be no track current and pickup current (+) from the Catenary and ground to the track. Second thought is Battery only and a section of "hot track" such as at the "car barn" to charge the Battery.

My knowledge on this subject is very low at this point.

Thanks
