Re: Stay alive capacitors in analogue locos?

* With the SDJR 25a Dazzler I have had to put pick-ups on the pony to help smooth running.

Re: 3D Printing and Design

+ As has already been said, it is not the printing but the CAD work that makes the model. I have now produced several models as commissions. There are some models that do not make good candidates for 3D printing because of expense, and cheaper methods to achieve the same model. I think the "0.0...

At only 0.7v loss each using diodes, would be a long daisy chain.

Reducing Max Voltage to Govern Small Motors

+

There are small 12v motors listed on eBay that have gearboxes
to provide good torque and fit in 10mm between frames for kit
builders.

The RPM's are quoted for voltages viz 3v/6v/12v. as 30/60/120rpm.

Any suggestions on component values to limit 12v and govern max.
slow running.
