Well, here goes!

You are looking at four 1.5 volt alkalines in series, a Spektrum AR500 Rx, an Associated Electronics reversing ESC, a 9-pole brushed motor w/A-Line flywheel, all mounted on a Hobbytown frame with gear tower and power trucks.  The universal shafts are custom made.  Extensive testing and optimization is next.

Future power will be via paralled LiFePO4 rechargeable batteries (for safety). This was only to prove to myself that RC for HO is feasible.  Whatever components are used to reach the common objective, it would seem now is the time for me to put it all together and lay down some track MY WAY!    

Thank you all for your helpful comments.
