    Bingo!

    Ok thought I'd add a photo Of my 4 legged pooper. She ain't real big and as a matter of fact I might just be able to shoe horn her into the cab of that loco. :thumb:

    That's a heck of a nice lookin' "mistake" you got there from ebay! Did you mistakenly set up some track in the yard as well? ;) :D

    Masonjar, I have been sitting out on the deck drinking the morning coffee when my mind accidently pictures a loop around the yard. Don't know a thing about yard trains though. I do know that monster might find it's self on the work bench accidently getting superdetailed and wearing a toned down paint job.
    Is it possible to convert one of these Bach loco's to R/C?

    btw- cooking oil don't make good smoke juice for the stack- but it does make it smell like chicken cooking. :eek:

    Yes it is possible to convert to remote control. A guy at one of the local clubs has converted many Aristocraft large scale trains to battery power/remote control. No more reliance on track power! I do not know all the details, but if you are serious, I'll try to dig up some contact info. Send me a PM...

    Cooking oil is more prototypical than you might think. I understand that Canadian steamers were lubed with rapeseed (now called Canola) oil in the circa-WWII era. Nothin' like the smell of french fries coming down the track... ;)
