Michael-O scale 2 rail is easily "converted" to r/c/. I would go with 2 instead of 3...My rationale is that (1) I prefer 2 rails over 3 (unless it is dual gauge). (2) Converting a 3 rail (tinplate) loco to r/c might be an easy fix but why not go 2 rail to begin with, because (3) With r/c, it doesn't matter whether you have 2, 3, or 5 rails, or no track at all...the train will still run.
(My opinion)...I never liked 3 rail. When I was a little kid, I loved my American Flyer train much more than my Lionel train because real railroads ran on 2 rails and I never saw one running on 3 rails.
I have a layout in my back yard-the Mogollon Railway-and just love it there. I found two things I love...radio control and running trains under the sun and moon.
With all that out of the way...WELCOME TO FREERAILS and don't be shy.

Woodie
