Bought my first train

Postby Bear » Fri Jul 07, 2017 9:36 pm

Well I think I'm going through mid life crisis or my mates made me do it. :?

So after very little research, I fell on the buy it button of that auction site with all the shiny things.

It arrived today, quickly hidden in the garage before the boss sees it. :lol:

Pictures to follow.

Lol as long as possible my life depends on it!

Think I'll introduce her slowly by getting the 3D printed loco motorised, then going round on some track. Then the new one appears eBay bargain I think is best.

Ian.

Here’s some pictures.

It’s ready wired for radio control (aristo-craft own version) and DCC. Comes with smoker and speaker ready installed although no sound unit.

I need to do some research and see if I can get hobby grade radio control of the unit without masses of rewiring.
