    In theory that should work fine and you will be recharging the batteries from the track yes ?

    Yes, that was my idea. 12 volts to the track and use the S Cab BPS and Lipos to provide power to the decoder, and recharged from the track. Saves a lot of stuff like recharging sockets, physical switches etc.

    The BPS board appears to provide a stable 11 volt output with over and under voltage protection, reed on and off switch to protect the Lipos.

    Must check Loksound decoders work with 11 volts.

    The 31 body is coming on, post on my other thread coming soon.

    Thanks to all,
