The best site I know for model railway electronics (apart from MERG, of course) is Bob Paisley's http://home.cogeco.ca/~rpaisley4/CircuitIndex.html

http://home.cogeco.ca/~rpaisley4/CDPSU.html starts with the very simplest circuit and develops it in various ways.

Hi
You will find two on my web site. The basic is very simple works ok, but does take a few seconds to recharge. While the lower more advanced CDU employing a transistor is as good as most commercially made ones! (Blowing own trumpet!) smile.gif
