    Been searching for a good N scale set on eBay and I keep stumbling across these battery powered sets. They all run on 4 AA batteries plus two recargable batteries.

    What the heck? :confused:

    The mall toy shop had a few a year ago. They're at the toy end of N. Right, plastic track. The locos have rechargeable batteries in them and you charge from a hand held unit, IIRC.
    They all disappeared before I could buy one.
    Womderful solution if your power supply isn't reliable.
