G'day Bill,

I'd be interested in one or two of these, I'll be sending you an email. Are these the units which can automatically run a water pump?

That web address below your signature doesn't appear to work, could you fix it please?

I am curious about these too. I was under the impression that this is the indicator light that will go on when the water is low. Can any one elaborate?

There is a light that lets you know the water is low. There is also an optional servo pump that will turn on and off as needed that is tied into the electronics.

I have the first wilds system that was installed in a loco, it was done at diamond heqad in an Accucraft mogul, which had no sight glass, the unit worked perfectlyl then and still does, I highly recommend them. Bob root

Randy,

The WLDS water level indicator is a "bicolor" LED which is always illuminated when the system is in use, it is GREEN when the water level is at or above the probe and turns RED when the water level falls below the probe.

Bill, I think I could use one of your systems. Are you making the one that fits into the Accucraft fill valve?

Thanks Jason and John. Jason, you mention the servo pump. This runs an electric pump to fill the boiler? That is an interesting alternative to a servo working the bypass for an axle pump. Where do you inject the water? I imagine you need to add a hole to the boiler?

Anyone have a picture of the WLDS unit?

Wow Ray! Thanks for that link. It answers all my questions. I was also wondering if they had the probe in combo with the goodall valve and there it was!

Randy - The WLDS system can automatically activate the electric water pump to maintain sufficient water in the boiler. The train does neede to be stopped to inspect the water level. Also the system can control an axle pump in the same manner. Water is injected thru a check valve. In the case of an Accucraft loco, there is a Goodall/Sensor which fits in the water fill opening so no holes have to be drilled in the boiler. See www.wldssystem.weebly.com for a full description.
