I got it all connected and it tested pretty good.😃👍 and yes this is my home video just in case. This is not copy right. Enjoy the video.

Excellent!

This is the result of the test is that correct? If the motor runs fine on the battery, then the board has been blown, specifically that burnt out piece we spoke about earlier. I would purchase a new board if that is the case and get it running.

Yes this is the test.  Can we replace the burnt out piece on the board? Just so I can keep this unit as back up just in case this happens again?

I can't say for certain wether the piece can just be removed,and a new one soldered in. @gunrunnerjohn would probably be able to tell you. His most likely response, however, is probably going to be that it's not worth it and that you should replace the entire board which is only $30. Another thing to point out is that we don't know for certain if another component is burnt out or not functioning correctly. You could also turn this into a TMCC engine which would omit the old board and give you command control functionality. I would personally go that route.

Truthfully, if that part burnt out, it's quite possible that more damage has been done.  For a $30 board, it's not really cost effective to start troubleshooting when they go up in smoke.  If it's a clearly identifiable failure, like R2LC lighting and smoke triacs, then parts replacement is realistic as you know specifically which part you need to replace, and it's unlikely other parts will also require replacement.

Ok then, I’ll just buy a new one. Trainz.com has one for about $23.
