Nice work, as usual! Put me down as a beta tester for one of the postwar conversion boards 😉 I really like that you retain the e-unit. I would probably install the board with a switch to run conventional or via the board, like LC+ does now.
Just thinking ahead a step or two here...
Will there be a way to update your board if Lionel comes out with an app update that changes how data is sent from app/remote to engine? I’d hate to see an LC app update negate all of your progress so far.
Thank you very much, and will do 😉. I would say it's worth the effort for me to keep it in for the cool factor too. Plus it makes adding a simple slide switch to switch to conventional mode very easy. I was definitely planning on adding the same switch to mine.
Well I certainly hope it never comes to that since I would definitely prefer working with Lionel than against. It would be a shame if things came down to helping the train community by fighting Lionel. (seams like they would be fighting their own customers in that scenario).
But to answer your question software updates will be possible in some capacity. Though I only hope I need the ability to release new features and nothing else.
