Sorry, I couldn't figure out how to post more than one pic with the upload option.

Here are the batteries and motor in view...

Thanks Tony, looks like I need the 3S version vice the 4S for the 11.1v Lipo, found some sources online plus I'll check with the local RC shop.

Ken, thanks for the pix, how did you secure the plug so it wouldn't move? It's a shame the plugs don't come in black.

How about something like this

I have some 2 pin versions and they fit PCB board spacing

They should be widely available.

Thanks Dave!

I have a couple of 4-pin connectors in my parts bin, but they have beveled edges on the top side of the male and female plugs whereas the plug on the battery pack has square edges.

I have Debbie's RC World nearby and I'm sure they have what I need so I'm off to see them today!

Bob, I glued the socket to the seat and footplate. I will paint the connector black, the little loco isn't quite finished. The plug arrangement works well though and is a standard configuration.

The toggle switch in the operator's area serves to connect the batteries for charging or running. In essence it becomes an on/off switch. Off being the 'charge' position.

Thanks Ken, the toggle could be used to represent a control lever for the engineer, thus hiding its true purpose [toast]

Yes, that's why it got located where it is. It is between the operator's knees, just in case he heeds to switch the thing off.
