Large / Wish Dash9 was available with Blunami
October 26, 2023, 01:18:26 PM
As far as I can tell 2 of the most popular products out there are the Blunami and the Dash9. I wish the Dash9 was available with a Blunami decoder pre-installed.
Thomas & Friends / Need Blunami version of Thomas

I have SoundTraxx Blunami boards. Now my kids want Blunami Thomas. We need Blunami Thomas.

No, but you can see a photo of them here:
No. EZ App isn't intended for this. EZ App trains can be put in DC mode by toggling the direction button back and forth on a standard transformer. Once in DC mode, the circuit board falls asleep if you bring the throttle to "0", so you never bring the throttle all the way down. The loco stops at about 15% power.
I was at Amherst and saw the SoundTraxx Blunami boards. Any chance we'll aver have any of that in Bachmann? I am mostly into Large Scale and Thomas.
EZ App Android has been updated to function on the latest version of Android.

The latest version is 1.2.134 released on June 11, 2021.

You do NOT need a phone plan on any device to run trains.  A good device for running EZ App is an iPhone 6s plus 16 GB which you can buy on eBay in the $50 range. No plan required. You will need an email address to create a free AppleID which will be needed to download the free app.
Williams by Bachmann / Amperage draw on a Williams GP9

Does anyone know the amperage draw on a Williams GP9?
Do EZ App boards have an LED on the board that lights up when the board is receiving power?

I'm not talking about the headlight LED - I mean a small indicator on the board to let you see when it is receiving power.

You do NOT need a phone service to run these trains. You can purchase an iPhone6s plus 16 GB for ~ $50 on eBay, download the free Bachmann EZ app and run the trains.

You do NOT need a phone service or any type of account associated with the phone. You can also use a tablet (like an iPad or an Android tablet).

It is a very affordable controller for a train, and works with bluetooth (which is built into the phone/tablet).

You will need to have an email address to get onto the Appstore or the GooglePlay store to download the free control app.
Will Williams locos operate on DC power? Or does the track have to have AC?

Always available in the Bachmann EZ App. 3 free songs come with the app. You have the option to buy 6 more in iOS. The trains move in sync to the Christmas music.

The EZ App is designed to control Bachmann EZ App locos.  You use an Android or iPhone as your remote using the free app.
Thanks so much - I agree. My question is more of a technical question. Trying to understand if any of the decoders were so basic that they did not support CV reads at all.
