Good evening Helmut and all, I have three of the very old and overly manufactured 4 wheel diesels in HO, their quality depended on who manufactured it.  This was a hood unit with end cab and most times had one traction tire on a wheel.  I have without too much trouble placed a Del-Tang unit, 2 LiPo batteries, an on/off switch and small, 3.5 mm charging port in these.   I use these for local mill and yard switching on my On30 railroad.  If memory is correct I probably removed the weight from it to gain space.  I do think I spend more time on being creative as to where I hide the switch and charging port.  Of all of the Bachman offerings the On30 4-4-0 and 2-6-0 locos thrive on battery r/c. Well, that is what I think, living the dream in the land of pleasant living on the Eastern shore of Maryland,Steve
