Meanwhile, fans of this unique car can look forward to another run in a few months that will repeat the paint schemes of the initial release which sold old rapidly. Late last month, ExactRail announced that it was developing an HO scale Southern Pacific class C steel bay-window caboose in its highend Signature series. The Digitrax UP5 is the only offering for their system.
Okay, that covers the physical differences, what is actually going on with the networks? It features three connectors behind the panel and two in front. Any device on the LocoNet can control or retrieve data from any other device. This includes boosters, throttles, interface boards, signals, etc. The third pair is used for track power, but only on the cable between the PowerCab and its PCP power panel.
NCE offers several options for throttle panels. T-style wiring without the need for extra splitters. The UP5 features heavy-duty RJ-style sockets.
They are much more reliable than the phonestyle RJ connectors available at your local hardware store. The Control Bus connects the command station to boosters. If you use only one booster — the one built into the Power Pro five-amp system You need places to plug your throttles into your DCC system. Throttle panels are usually mounted strategically around the layout on the fascia.
The UP5 includes a power jack that allows a volt DC power supply to feed power to any throttle plugged into the front. If it is connected between various UP5 panels, the auxiliary power applied to one will be available to all, keeping the plugged-in throttles from discharging. This is important, as the Digitrax radio throttles have no way to be shut off, short of opening the battery door. Its Cab Bus runs around the layout connecting all the throttle panels that provide a place to plug in to control trains.
It has four RJ connectors: Like the UP5, these connectors are heavy-duty to withstand the rigors of plugging and unplugging throttles from them.
NCE recommends providing this power every half-dozen or so panels. The NCE radio throttles have a front panel shutdown capability. These boards may be jumpered such that all signal and power wires are duplicated, reducing the loss from long runs and increasing reliability due to the use of two parallel contacts in the connectors.

Construction of the lasercut kit features pre-cut, peel-and-stick vertical siding over a plywood core. Hold-down furring strips on the peel-and-stick tarpaper roof add a bit of funk to the overall look of the structure. The door and window arrangements of the prototype bunk houses differed slightly and the versatility of this kit allows builders to follow a similar random approach in completing their model.
This easy-to-assemble kit is also available in HO and S scale. Illustrated above is the handcrafted brass pilot model of the class LRC car.
