In past videos I’ve introduced you to ABS signals, shown you how they work on the prototype and how to use them on a model railroad, and shown you how to build and wire the necessary circuit boards. So the final step is to show you how to install them on a model railroad. In this video I’ll show you how those I installed on the Piedmont Southern work, and give you a look behind the fascia at how they are wired.
I checked and there are several sources for detection or restive wheelsets and a quick search will give you many options. Also I will be doing a video to show how I make mine so be patient.
