Things will be slowing down now that I found a job. But at least there will be evenings and weekends. Since I already had an investment in the RailBoss system, it wasn't that much to buy a Li-Po and charger. Only problem I have is fitting it all under the hood of the stock hood of the Davenport. Not quite enough room but I'm working on a remedy that I think will make the lokie slightly different from all the others out there.

Dwayne -  I'm also working on a Davenport project for 7/8n2 (sort of).  I removed the stack of steel weights, used a belt sander to remove about 1/2 inch from the front of each one, then reinstalled them.  This gives me enough room to put 6 AA NiMH batteries between the weights and the front of the hood.

Bill, nice looking critter you've got there. So far mine is coming along pretty good. New 7/8ths sized cab of course. Getting the Railboss in took some thought but I figured out a way to do it while allowing for easy removal and installation of the lipo battery. Hoping to get it all buttoned up and ready for painting this weekend.

I left my Davenport demo loco in 1:20.3 scale.
I managed to fit a 4s 1500 mah Li-Ion flat pack, Deltang based ALPHA-3v2 RX/ESC and MyLocosound all under the hood.


The battery is charged in situ via a regular servo lead cable.
Endurance is well over two hours.
