Pete, I use the Engineer PA-09 tool for many connectors. The really tiny 1.25mm or 1.0mm pins are too small for reliable crimps with this tool. However, the larger pins work great with it, it's my...

Pete, if you have actually worked with these Molex connectors, you'll discover they're every bit as hard to separate as the JST connectors! For my test set, where I'm taking the connectors apart all...

Carl, the JST connectors I use are the EH (2.54mm), the PH (2.0mm), and the ZH (1.5mm). Those cover most of the connectors used by Lionel for TMCC/Legacy. They also use the Molex PicoBlade 1.25mm...

For whatever reason, I couldn't find them last time I looked, don't know what the issue is.

One problem is they're discontinued by Molex and so existing stock is all that's left.

Mouser.com has...

Gee, I was more lucky this time.

It's most certainly not a JST product, I already checked that out. It's an oddball flat connector, not sure why they feel the need to have yet another unique and odd connector.

Actually, you could use the 5V regulator and LED's, and then just slap a big 5V supercap across it. That would decay very slowly and give you a good interval of almost steady LED intensity as it...

There is a question whether any locomotive can be "happy" on O27, but that's another topic. :D

It's very difficult to keep even LED's on for a long period without using a supercap, especially for a single pickup car. Going slowly over a switch is a test of energy storage.

Correct, there is a size where smoke is a real tight squeeze. However, talking about the RS-3, size isn't a factor, and the PS/3 ones all got smoke again.
