Am I typing yet?? Half the time my posts disapppear before I am finished.. Anyway... This week I secured yet an other storage unit for an unrelated use but thought, given it's size, I might have several uses for it. The idea is to store boxes and boxes of inventoried and labled trains, yet to be done. Also to shelve some individualy. I am thinking since HO is dc that I could put my train table in there and with a deep well marine battery, a regulator and a potenioniter (spelling?) or reosta,t which ever is appropriate, run some trains and some 12 volt camper lifgts. So what would I need to regulate the juice and reduce it to HO requirements? How many watts, volts and amps does HO engines require? An other thing it is that across the road in walking distance is a a puplic access fishing spot. I could keep a cooler, tackle and lawn chair in it to fish a bit and mostly kick back and watch the river flow. How 'bout them apples? :mrgreen: Gil.
