Atlas RS3 Conversion

Post by brianc » Fri Jan 05, 2018 7:18 pm

A5 Railroaders, in conjunction with Northampton Model Railway Supplies,have produced sets of weights designed to facilitate conversion of DC Atlas RS3's to DCC Sound. These are available at £7.50 per set, plus postage if applicable.
If anyone is interested in these please let me know, contact details in Directory, I will have them at the Benson meet next weekend for collection.
Alternatively our Club members do attend other events when these can be collected if necessary.
If there is demand, we could probably produce weights for other locos. Let us know.

Good Idea,

Any pictures of the installation to share?

It should be emphasised that there are detail differences between various Atlas models so some slight modification might be needed.
