Finally got around to installing the entire RailBoss radio control system. And since it works I must've done it correctly. :)

Under the hood sans the 2S Li-po battery...




... and with the battery in place...

Now that the lokie is RC operational, I'll have to get on to adding the turnout for the pecan oil industry as well as the passing siding where the steamup location will be located. And building some tank cars. New job made a serious dent in my free time...:sad:

Ran the Davenport around the BS for a couple of hours. One change I'm in the process of making is to use velcro to attach the receiver to the cab ceiling instead of the fixed holder I originally intended to use. That option didn't allow for easy access for the connectors to the receiver pins. Anyways, that's the reason the receiver is sorta just hanging in the cab for the moment.

I actually set the TX down. The Rail Boss even allows for turning off the TX and the lokie will continue running at a constant speed. I do like the momentum feature too.

Actually shot this with my cheap ol' Android phone. After uploading it to YouTube I was queried by them if I wanted to edit for the shakiness which I did. :)

For the Davenport did you just use what you had on hand? Did you have a plan or just went with what looked appealing to the eye?

It looks really nice! Also like the track.
