 CVP Airwire Converter for small scales

 New for 2013 is the Converter R and converter X for smaller scales. The difference between the R and X is a $5.00 external antenna. This is a new way to battery power a locomotive or what ever using anyone's DCC decoder and CVP Airwire 900 transmitters. You now can run  locomotives on anyone's track or even the floor.  I have been using small 750 Mi Amp batteries for the RS-1, GP-9 and SW-8 locomotives. I use the larger 3000 Mi Amp battery for just about everything else. All Voltages are 11.1 and the batteries are Li Ion. The 3% discount for ($3.00) check or cash does apply.
