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 system into Diesels as well as common everyday Steamers such as 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 locomotives and tenders. If you have a locomotive with no room for a battery and control module this clinic will also allow you to build a Battery/Control car to use in conjuction with your locomotive. For those interested at the same time we will have the different LEDs to convert your 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 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 January 19, 2019. If you have any questions please contact Warner Swarner 503-970 2890(wbswarner@aol.com) or Mike Fisher 503-799-9160(mqrmfisher@msn.com) . At the time you sign up 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 (Revolution has significantly upgraded their sound systems), a 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 are $4 each all wired and ready to go and a firebox kit is $8.

Hosted by Warner Swarner, Mike Fisher, and Jim Loudon  plus addition technical support helpers.
