M y Mikado was a first generation loco ,running outside around 30 Fahrenheit would not work ,beside gutting the electronic and installing a water bath heater via blowdown valve I used Tony's RCS .The throttle unit replaced with a servo and the stock forward/reverse motor connected to a servoelectronic,the ignition connected with a push button
direct to a battery.The trailing car holds the propane with the regulator ,a fuel tube bypasses
the tender direct to the stock jet.Why??? I get ca 10 hrs run time per bottle,no tankfilling
or warm water bath anymore
Consistent long runs in any weather.
And most of all :Its fun to tinker around and very rewarding!
