Hi Bigscalers, can anyone recomend a #1 gauge r/c loco? I thought I saw a 44 tonner type loco, is it by USA? Does anyone do installs of battery and receiver? I've had a garden railroad using a Bachmann big Hauler for years, but am tired of cleaning track, and connecting power. Battery is the way to go, all I want it to do is run maybe 4 hours between charges, have sound so my Granddaughter can blow the horn/whistle. I model in HO, and have come to realize if I don't buy an equipped loco I won't have one for this year as I now know I won't take time from the HO. So if anyone can help me find an equipped 44 tonner or other small loco, my Granddaughter will appreciate it, so will her gramps.
