mlycan I just converted my Bachmann Porter to battery power. Went with the MTO Train 09 battery. The battery car is a Bachmann 40' log car and the run time so far is 6 hours with out much change in speed. Very happy.

East Broad Top Go with Li-Ion batteries. 14.8 volts, 2600mAh in a 3" x 3" x 1" space. I get between 3 - 5 hours out of a pack like that depending on the locomotive. If you're running a mining loco, it would likely be small, so your runtimes would be at the upper end of that spectrum.

battery car ideas

Good suggestions:
I need to figure out my size and dimensions for batteries. What is optimal voltage?
12/1.2=10 cells probably C type in order to get the mAh requirements.

Any general rules on that? Resources?

Battery car ideas

Looking for ideas for battery car. This loco will serve a mining operation.
Maybe a tool car?
First battery project in 20 years, new technology. Found an old one in the parts bin with a wound, servo controlled speed control.... sigh.
