As I transition from DCC/sound equipped locos to radio-controlled, battery-powered operation (dead rail), I’ll document the process in blog posts. Certain topics will also be placed here, as a primer for those who are interested in converting their own trains to dead rail.

Information presented on these pages is gleaned and compiled from my own experiences and those of others who are already using battery-power to run their trains, discussions with manufacturers and resellers, and discussions with friends who are using similar technologies in R/C model aircraft and cars.
