Re: Walthers lighted passenger cars


Hello Chuck:

A small diode should do, it just needs to carry the current of the lights in the car.

For the rest I'll need some more details.

Are we talking 2 rail HO? Are the trucks picking up power from one rail, or both?

Is the passenger train long enough to reach 3 blocks, or from the first, across the second block and back to the first?

Are the blocks at the same "polarity"?

Thanks, Carl.

Would you explain how you would attach the diode to a truck in this situation? Also what size diode would you recommend?

Thanks for your help
