In a show of support for my decision to pursue a BPRC layout, my wife bought me my first BP (unfortunately, non-RC) train for Christmas.





It actually also has a tender but it has "pins" on both ends instead of the requisite pin on one end and loop on the other.

The little train did serve to bring home several ideas.
The first is that even though this engine has no speed control, in every other way it is totally equal to the same train on DC or DCC.
Good speed control was the differentiator until we started using proportional control with battery power.
The other is that BPRC does not have to be complex.
I have been doing a lot of over-thinking.
