Hi David,

Thanks for the comment.

I found an old thread on a train forum showing how someone installed a power truck in one of these models. They cut out the bottom and were able to save the seats like you did. I don't know if I will have enough space to save the seats and have room for the RC stuff yet. I might be able to slice off the seat tops and glue just the tops of some people to the seats and then sit that part on top of the Receiver / Battery.

I need to figure out how to get at the wiring for the motor so I can remove the wheel pickups and run wires from a RC Receiver to the motor. I will probably ruin one motor learning how to do this.

The shipping was 12 days and I wondered how that was going to work. I asked about it and he said he had sent some to the US before and didn't have any problems. They came through our Postal System. He was very nice to deal with and answered all my questions very quick. He didn't have enough Yellows one for my order and got more really fast. I sort of figured he took a quick trip to his local "Toys R Us" and stocked up. I think I read someplace that they have a Museum in Lisbon where they sell them along with T-shirts etc. I want a t-shirt with the Yellow Tram on it.
