Reply to "BlueRail engine using AC track power"

Well back to our topic at hand... 

Last week I hooked up the BR board and TSU-2200 sound decoder in an ATLAS AEM-7.  It sure did sound great and ran smoothly, but the front and rear lights would not behave properly.  When the headlight came on the rear light would not go off.  The Soundtraxx people said the decoder needed to be repaired.  They fixed it under warranty and returned it to me.

During the down time the Tam Valley also updated the firmware for the BlueRail board.  They told me I no longer need the electro capacitor for AC track use.

So everything is on the workbench.  Hopefully I can do some work on it this evening and Sunday and show you all how it came out.

Wiring up the 2200 Sound decoder is a pain because there are no connectors.  All the wires get soldered.  If I do this again, I will spend a little more and get the TSU-4400 with the screw connectors.
