Woodie,  Is this the same engine as #5 - Lizzy?  Your Shays are the inspiration for me buying this Bachmann unit.  Not certain what I will be doing with it but probably convert to 1/35n2.
Model car type conversions are great.  Considering when you began proving the concept, it was the only option.  Not sure I would like to mess with the old 72 or 75mhz though as the antennas for both the transmitter and receiver were a bit of a pain.  With all the newer 2.4ghz and smaller sizes available it is nowhere near the challenge you faced "back when".
