I live in Westleigh, Sydney and would like to resurrect and rebuild my eighties derelict mining and logging HO 2ft6inch narrow gauge layout using radio control if feasible. Does anyone have experience fo trying to fit RC in Liliput tank and Roco tender and Shay locomotives? Alternatively I can use an attached boxcar or caboose, if insufficient space. John.
Howdy John and welcome to Freerails. If you are wanting to r/c HOn30 (HOn2 1/2, OO9), then you will most likely need a "trailer car" for the equipment. There are some very small r/c boards and batteries available now, check the r/c forum here for info. With that written, I will add that ANYTHING is possible, I have seen r/c N scale. Take care and check things out.

Woodie is correct, he is our member who first posted the concept here at FreeRails.
Take the time to read through all the radio control stuff posted here--it WILL take a while, because there is so much info here--some of it will be Greek to you now--just skip over that, and come back to it later.
Do that before getting your wallet out. Once you learn what is feasible and available you will be better equipped to decide how you want to proceed.
Although we don't allow direct selling on the forum, we do have two manufacturers of RC gear that post here, and both are very accommodating in answering questions.
So you came to the right place.
