This 4 day (4 consecutive Saturdays) Workshop is for those new to battery conversions and designed to do a complete battery conversion for your locomotive. As this is a beginners workshop it will be for those wanting to install a Revolution system into their locomotive. It is designed for those wanting to put this into LGB Moguls, Bachmann 10 wheelers, Aristocrat C16s  and other common everyday runners. As this is a beginners workshop we can't accomodate high end, complex locomotives as this will allow us to aid in the process of building the required infrastructure for all the different tenders. For those interested at the same time we will have the different LEDs to convert you lights over at the same time. This is worthwhile as the lights work so much better and use much less power from your battery pack. Also for those locos with open boilers we can help you install a nice set of flickering lights into it. At the end you will have a fully functioning locomotive with sound and lights that will be both dependable and able to have a long run time between charges.

Because we will have to have time to get everything ordered and here we will have a cut off signup date of Sept. 23rd. If you have any questions please contact Warner Swarner or Mike Fisher. At the time you signup please send an email letting us know which locomotive you plan on using for your new installation.

Cost: $390 + / -   This will include a full Revolution system with sound, 6800 mah Lithion Ion Battery pack, Basic wiring harness, and a smart charger for Lithion Ion batteries.

Attendee Limit: Due to limited space, attendance is limited to the first 8 who sign up, and again, due to limited space - PLEASE, NO GUESTS.

Contact Warner Swarner to make payment arrangements and if you have any of these items already, let Warner know at the time of the sign up so that can deduct those items from the cost and bulk purchase order for the class.

You will need a speaker but some of your locos may already have one. We will order one with all the rest of this equipment Also we are going to ask for a little discount with such a large order so price may vary a bit. LEDs would be a few bucks more if you want to re-light you loco but they are not expensive.
