I am building a small HO scale layout, under a clump of Crepe Myrtle trees in the back yard.
I am using DelTang R.C. stuff from the On30 Guy.
I first converted a Athearn GP-38 putting everything in the shell,
to include a capacitance touch switch under the cab roof to turn the unit off and on.
Pretty cool except when the engine goes underneath low hanging foliage and turns itself off.
MOW crew is slack.
Battery charging pigtail is under the removable dynamic brake hatch.
Second effort was a diminutive $5 unknown name 0-4-0 tank engine,
that I put everything but the battery in.
I made a sorta whaleback tender for it that holds lots of mA.
I’m currently working on a better quality 4-4-0 that doesn’t look as goofy.
Howdy from Texas and welcome to Freerails.
R/C HO in the sunshine...very cool.
Remember that r/c doesn't just free you from wiring problems,
it frees you from wiring altogether!
Have fun and give us updates.
