Guys,

The K-Line remote only works with the K-Line cars and the Williams remote only works with Williams cars.  Requirements to pass FCC testing did not allow us to make the remote work with the older K-Line cars.

We were developing a board for passenger cars and pre-wired the baggage car with a socket.  There was a label on the bottom of the cars identifying them. We cancelled the project before announcing it and the passenger cars were already produced.

However, there were cars made in the 1990's that did have a board installed. Check with the seller to make sure before you bid.

Lee,

All that is required to install either of these diesel boards is power (two wires), and the physical space to install them.  They come with a plug installed that will go into any of our reverse boards that have sockets.  For older installations, you must cut the plug off and hard wire.

I will summarize all the features.

1.  The True Blast Plus sound board cannot turn off prime mover sound.   All of the feedback that we were getting was that people wanted the sounds.  Now you want to turn them off!  Roll Eyes  The Prime mover sound varies with track voltage. You can adjust the master volume on the board, if you take off the shell.

2.  The board is polyphonic.  Meaning that all sounds can play at the same time.  True Blast II was monophonic only one sound at a time.

3.  Sounds are prototypical to loco type.  True Blast II was a generic sound set.

4.  You can control the length of the horn blast on the True Blast Plus board. The True Blast II was a pre-programmed grade crossing.



Yes you can use the True Blast II board in place of True Blast Plus.  Both use the same power plug that connects to the reverse board, so it is an easy swap.

Hi Ed,

Unfortunately parts for all of the brass locomotives have been used up many years ago. However, since these are scale locomotives, you should be able to use brass detail parts from any company.  I did not look at their catalog in detail, but you may find what you need at http://www.precisionscaleco.com/

Guys,

That is EXACTLY why we have made both.  Feedback has shown that both are liked.

Shurlock,

We have already made them.  They were not full scale length.

There are a few on eBay for reference.

Joe,

We were originally going to make an electronic version of the 622/6220 bell ringer. Then we got the single sound board design from OTT machine services and it sounded better than what we were working on, so we decided to use it.  It was an extremely tight fit, but we made it work.

Dear ajminco,

The first production run of NW-2s were equipped with True Blast I and they only had a bell.  If you have the original box, the label should indicate with Digital Bell, or with Digital Horn & Bell if it is the newer version (True Blast II).  Another way to tell is if the bell rings for 8-10 seconds and then stops, then you have the original version.

Just because we have not made your favorite paint scheme does not mean we do not listen. We have made many items suggested by customers. There are thousands of items to model aan we can  only make a handful each year. If we hear the suggestion from multiple sources it is more likely to be produced.

Lee is correct about undecorated versions, but not about fancy paint schemes; we have produced many fancy paint schemes.

There have been several designs on the SuperStreet Vehicles. The E-Z Street vans that we have made require that you remove the front pick-up roller to get to the front mounting screw. The rear mounting screws are straight forward.

Guys,

Only the older brass locos and the new 4-6-0s have an on/off switch for smoke output.
