Good afternoon all, Tom, I'll second Chuck's request, how about some background on that interesting locomotive. Chief, I'll send you info on a good Atlas dealer. What you really need for that parade is a rubber tired Thomas the Tank Engine. RT, Glad to hear things are working out for you. Good luck with the new job. Doug, Enjoy your trip to Phoenix. The last time I was in that area was when my oldest daughter received her MBA from Thunderbird in Glendale. Were it not for my wife I think I would be living there now. :mrgreen: :thumb: wall1 Brutus, Don't be in a rush to buy that TMCC engine, I suspect the prices to drop now that Legacy is out. Jeffrey, Nice neat looking installation. announce1 For the life of me I can not understand why TMCC electronics are so large. No reason they could not be significantly reduced in size. There is nothing to keep them as large as they are now except that Lionel requires all the licensees to use their antiquated receiver as part of the deal. Maybe since Jon is now working for Lionel we will see some improvement. They could reduce the size and put it in all of their started set for a small increase in price as all of the development costs have long since been recouped. End of soapbox speech.
