Re: Tortoise Power Supply

Are you setting the throttle at any particular voltage?  More voltage, the faster it throws.  I have seen some videos, where the points move at a realistic slow speed.

I tried mine at 9 volts, with a 5000 mAh power supply, but it is a little slow. Nut j know that the Amps are there to handle the load.  The 12 volt power supply has less Amps, but much quicker throwing.

Just wanting to find out what others are using.

How many machines does your power supply operate? Are you using g more than one power supply.

I am going to have about 40 machines when I am through, unless I convert the ground through turnouts on the lower of three levels. If I did, that would increase the machines bay another 25.

Thanks for the help,

Re: Tortoise Power Supply

 

I use wall wart's... old cell phone charger, electric shaver, remote landline phone, kids disc player... anything that gives me 9 volts output dc or better. Amps... all less than 1 amp. I use one for each tortoise. I only have four on my layout... all operated from panels on the fascia with toggle switches.

Thanks Ken.  I often tell my wife, as she asks me why I have all this stuff I rarely use, that as soon as I get rid of it, I'll need it.  Great that you saved that.

I put together a printable HO scale graph paper sheet for a friend.

I am attaching the file.

Io may shrink it down so if it doesn't print right, please email me for a copy to be sent directly to your inbox.

Glue them to a piece of wood.

Fill them with paint brushes, Xacto blades, emery boards, tweezers or even strip wood.

Saves me a lot time spend looking for common small tools.

I know Doug was playing in a charity hockey tournament for Children’s Hospital on Thursday and then going to Chicago to pick up the Rail Graphics screens and equipment, so he may not get back to you right away. But my impression in talking with him about the cars at O scale West was the tank cars were a go in both scales.

To be clear, this is not the official word, just what I took from our brief chat as the cars were mentioned in passing. I have several on reserve in O scale and he assured me that they had all the reservations and would use those to determine order Qty.

Hi Doug,

Fairly typical if I might say, all those little things that should not take but a moment end up taking up hours. I think those who have been in business have experienced that too.

But I have a question. Are the HOn3 Conoco cars still going to be produced? I have a couple on order and may increse the number.
