In order to light up your cabooses and passenger cars, you have to have some way to pick up power from the rails and conduct it to the inside of the car itself. in this video I'll show you how I installed my DCC stay alive lighting circuit inside a caboose and provided power pickup. I'll also show you a way to make your own pickups and give you some tips on how to make others. HEADS UP!!! I checked eBay for metal sheet and got lucky. There was one seller with 0.005” thick phosphor bronze sheet so I ordered one for $13 including shipping. His is a limited supply. There is a lot of stainless steel sheet in all kinds of sizes and thickness and I stopped at 1 page so there could be a seller with small quantities in just the right sizes. As a point of reference the stainless steel pickups I used in this video were 0.005” thick so something within a mil of that should be good. I also checked with K&S Precision Metals and they do not have properly sized sheet. Their music wire is available in diameters down to 0.015” which would be almost half the diameter I demonstrated and a good size. I am still waiting to hear back from Streamlined Backshop about his pickups and will post that info as soon as I hear from him. OK, I heard back from Streamlined Backshop and basically, although he hasn’t discontinued them, don’t expect to see them anytime soon.
