 First and foremost  it's been over 16 months since my last post.  I have moved once and in the process of moving again. Baby number two is on the way....

About 9 months ago I bought a Austrains C36. I put a TCS DPX2 decoder in it and it wasn't a great runner soI left it and put up with it. 3 months later I brought 2 TCS KAT22 (with inbuilt keep alive) decoders  one for my C36 and C35,   
a mate put it it in for me and also fitted one pick up per bogie (one picks up from the left one from the right -will fit all wheel pick ups latter). The difference in performance is amazing no longer do I have to run it very quickly, now it will just creep over dead frog points and everything and light will no longer flicker and it will only go about a inch with out power  so it my have a bind 

Here is two views  of the 36 running. First video is on speed step 1 of 128 and the second video is on speed step 1 of 28

 Till next time

Cheers Oscar
