Reply to "Electronic pcb boards and parts in general. Whats there shelf life?"

Batteries go bad and leak and eat away their surroundings.

Capacitors degrade and can leak and eat away at their surroundings.

IC/Chips can have acceptable manufacturing imperfections that can get exasperated over time.

All the above cause issues for the retro-computing scene and apply just the same to our train electronics.

I'm sure there are others as well  - and this is discussing JUST shelf life - not operational life.
