to the J&W Electronics web site, dedicated to the model railroader. We specialize in electronic
circuits to enhance the operation of your model railroad. We are
now offering the BCR (Battery Component Replacement) for your Lionel* and M.T.H. engines (PS1 and PS2 engines with nine volt batteries). It is a permanent replacement circuit for the 9 volt battery. It eliminates the problems associated with dead batteries.
If you store or display your engines and decide to run them, you may find
that the M.T.H. engine will not operate, or the M.T.H. and the Lionel*
sound system will not shut down properly because of a dead battery. The BCR can be installed and after applying power for one minute in the reset position (first position when the engine is
turned on), the engine will operate again, just like having a fully charged
The BCR looks like a 9 volt battery, works like a 9 volt battery, but doesn't act like a 9 volt battery.
It fits in your 9 volt battery holder and connects to the 9 volt battery
clip. There are no extra wires to deal with, no modification necessary on any
This device allows you to store or display your engines and never need to charge your battery to operate them. After one minute of applying power, at 10 volts or more, to activate the BCR, the engine will be able to fully operate. No longer do you have to replace the battery or be concerned about the battery leaking and damaging your engine. The BCR can be left in the engine indefinitely. After turning the power off to the track, the BCR will hold a charge for 2 to 3 hours, depending on the engine. If you have
not operated the engine in 2 to 3 hours, power up the engine in the reset
position, for one minute at 10 volts or more.
