Very nice project!. I would make a charging track somewhere to park the consist without having to remove the battery, like the Miniature Wunderland does with their extensive fleet of scale autos. Jose.

Thanks for the comment.

I have two of the S-CAB Battery Charger Boards but haven't tried them yet. I plan to make the car shells lift off so it is easy to do a battery swap when necessary.

Thank you for all the additional photos. The first model has a really nice paint job and lots of details for me to try an capture on my CTA cars. The brass model also looks really nice model.

The chassis for mine will look very much like the one on the brass model. I had re-motored an Electroliner some time ago and it had an articulated chassis very similar to the one on the brass CTA model.
