Diesel WOW121 Decoder and Diesel WOWMotherboards with built-in Keep-Alive™

Use a TCS motherboard with built-in Keep-Alive™ and our WOW121 decoder for a simple installation. Simply remove the original lighting board, replace it with the WOWMotherboard (wired exactly the same as the original light board), and plug-in your WOW121-Diesel. You may need to install a speaker, depending on the locomotive, but all of the connections and power are handled cleanly and simply through the WOWMotherboard.

Thanks for the great NMRA Show Portland!

A big thanks to all the folks that came out to see us at the Portland NMRA show. We had a great year with lots of exciting advances in the product line and it was great to hear how much you all enjoy the products. For those TCS first timers (yes, there are a few out there!) it was such a delight to "WOW" you for the first time. There is no better feeling than presenting a modeller with WOWSound for the first time and watching the smile spread as they realize great sounds can come from a model. Thanks again for making it an excellent show, and here's to next year!
