Put one in an old Athern blue box diesel engine after installing a Tsunami 2.
The engine ran well but hesitated and some times stopped on my layout.
The keep alive fixed the problem.
This product was made with me in mind. My track goes though out the entire house 5 inches down from the ceiling and where I smoke cleaning and maintenance on the track seamed like it was all I was doing.Track maintenance is very important I know, but almost 300 feet to take care of, But with the CurrentKeeper STX-810140 it's went from daily to monthly. One thing is for sure I will be putting them in all my engines.
These current keepers are excellent. I installed them into 4 locomotives with Tsunami 2 sound decoders and they all performed flawlessly on track that hadn't been cleaned in a month. Usually they stop every few feet.
This is an excellent product. Works great in larger locos like E8 and F units in HO scale. Just not small enough for hood units. TCS KA 4 is great for hoods.
