Will this system apply to DC 00 gauge model coaches?
How does the power required picked up? Only coaches adapted for lighting, use a sprung metal leaf located between the bogy wheel axles. Fleischman coaches in some instances use this method.
I am made to believe that this system require bogy wheels are insulated on on wheel to enable the correct polarity voltage to be picked up. A fault is that the LEDs vary in brilliance according to voltage applied to the rails feeding the locomotive/coach - as stated a suitable capacitor is essential to give a flicker free lighting within the coach while in motion.
