- What about the inner resistance of the ammeter?
Is it a specific relationship between inner resistance of loco and
ammeter that will produce produce the readings mentioned? And does the
loco resistance vary with rotational speed - so that you will get
varying milli-amp readings depending on the point where wheel-spin
sets in (wheels and tracks not beeing 100% clean and friction/weight
I guess everyone will see immediately, that I do not know a lot about
these things! But....?
BTW: the lights on my locos only turns on at a voltage where the
current consumption makes the loco rather hot?? (Marklin locos)
