Over the weekend I converted a Bachmann On30 Porter 0-4-2 to RC. 

Installed a DelTang RX61 receiver, Pololu 9 Volt step up regulator, 250 mAh LiPo battery, reed switch and a charge jack. 

In order to hide the battery I made an oil tank to replace the coal load in the fuel bunker.

I still need to paint on numbers and weather it but otherwise it is done.

I test ran it at part throttle pulling three heavily weighted cars. 

It ran continuously for a little over one hour. 

On recharge it took in 243 mAh so, the run time will basically be one hour. 

A 2 cell battery would greatly increase that time but would not be hidden.
