Work on assembling the power control circuits for new battery loco No.6 has commenced.

Electrical components were supplied by Essel Engineering Ltd along with a very good wiring diagram. The components are:

  • Speed controller potentiometerr
  • Speed controller PCB with chip installed
  • Forward/reverse switch
  • Battery on/off switch
  • Fuse

These components were assembled, wired and soldered.

Then the assembly was temporarily fitted to the loco chassis, connected to the motor and a temporary 9.6 volt supply.

Result: It works! :-)
