Thanks, Woodie

I never had power in the rails when I had the LOSI board hooked up, so I'm pretty sure that I didn't fry the LOSI board that way. I did run the FT-A on DC from the front truck after I had clipped the rear truck, but the LOSI board and battery were still in the box when I did that. I suspect that I may have wired the locomotive incorrectly when I hooked up the battery and LOSI board but I don't see how.

In any event I am very excited about S-CAB right now and think that is the solution for me at this point in time. I have learned a great deal on FreeRails that has helped me make an intelligent choice and am more committed to R/C than ever. A friend here just ordered a pure DCC startup set and we have a friendly competition on the merits of battery power vs soldered rails. We'll see how that goes!

Thanks for all the help

Jim
