|O Scale Traction Module Layout - Radio Control w/ Battery Power etc.
I am thinking about building a module(s) for 2-Rail O Scale Traction.
I have a number of question before I can start.
One suggestion was Atlas/Roco O scale 2-rail track. I looked on the Walthers web site and on page 3 of the Altas O Scale Track listing found a page of 2 rail track.
They list a bunch of Code 148 track. Is this what I am looking for?
I also did a search on ebay for "Atlas/Roco O scale 2-rail track" and found a few listing for this.
The Module Standards will be based on the East PennTraction Club - modular layout standards but optimized for running Light Rail Vehicles with Pantographs or Bow Collectors(?).
Except that I want to use Radio Control with Battery for control and power.
One option will be to power the overhead wire or track so I can use one of the Stanton battery charger boards - or - no power to the overhead and charge the battery on a hot section of track or external battery charger.
