Jim-as for HO, my buddy DaveC (here on FR) has HO r/c locos. One is a nice Bachmann HO 2-8-0, it has an older KYOSHO r/c car board and rechargable 9 volt battery all in the tender. Dave also has an Athearn F7 A+A lashup with the same equipment in a dummy A, wired to the powered unit.
Another buddy Mopman (here also) has an Athearn GP9 lashup with another older KYOSHO board but Jim has a 3 cell 1600 MAH Li Poly battery in the dummy unit.
Yes, it is possible to run HO r/c. It is easier to install r/c in a loco than to install DCC...and there is no programming to be concerned with..or track & wheel cleaning, or layout wiring, or worries.

Woodie
