    Hinting to the wife for a garden train setup. Think I should have been a little more specific, she came home from a tag sale saying she found my layout, complete with track and engine. :rolleyes:

    Grandchildren will love it. She only paid $10 for the whole thing. Motor and whistle work great, just have to find a replacement battery. Hummm, wonder if I can electrify the track and put in some wheel contacts, ya and an operating headlight, ohhh, ya an smoke generator, maybe make some rolling stock. Ya sure like I have that kind of time.

    Considering some of the recent fantasy releases from microtrains in n-scale, that looks pretty realistic! ;)

    Bill, Have you considered to, ahem, toss a lawnmower engine into the loco and then...? :p

    Matthyro Will always be re-membered

    As you say Bill, I am sure your grandchildren will love it. I have a young grandaughter who would love to get her hands on one like that but don't know how long it would last. She is a taker apart kind of a kid.
