MRT Video Podcast #7-Neil Erickson Is dead rail the next big thing?

"MRT Video Podcast #7- Is dead rail the next big thing?" This week I speak with Neil Erickson and we talk about dead rail being the next big thing? Dead Rail, up until this interview I knew nothing about this concept. Dead Rail has many benefits including limited to no rail cleaning. So what is Dead Rail?: in short the locomotive is battery powered and radio/wifi controlled using some other electrical components and utilizing your current DCC command stations and DCC decoders. Fasinating. Neil also talks abouts his Oahu Railway Wahiawa Branch in On30.

Big shout out to Duncan McRee from Tam Valley Depot who allowed me to use his diagrams on how the Dead Rail system works. (this is not a sponsorship plug just some helpful information to set you off in the right direction with all things Dead Rail.
