That's a pretty impressive train Steve. Do we get to see a video?

Hi,

I'm trying to figure out how to do that.  The only serviceable video camera I have is my iPad, but that is running my MTH app, so kinda a catch 22 problem.  Another issue is that as the track main line is unfinished it would be pretty easy to run the whole consist into a 5' canyon, trying to switch back and forth between control and video would be risky :bang:

I'd like to give a shout-out to Ray's Electric Trains who sold me the BigBoy.  He added better smoke and sound, as well as doing the engine/tender portion of the battery conversion.  I hooked up my control and battery cars and it just worked (more or less).
There were a few minor issues but Ray worked them all out for me about as fast as I could email him a description of the problem.

Provided there's an MTH App for Android, too ( bet it will ), do like I did and get a cheap-as-dirt 5" Samsung clone from alibaba. This one I used exclusively for WiFi control apps ( even wrote my own ). Quit the stuff now, as a ride-on 9.5" ga. loco is definitely more fun.
