    • Rooster, just to ease your disturbed mind, the cones and doors are gone.

      Hmmm maybe that didn't come out sounding just right

    • The thought of you owning a package of traffic cones is disturbing in itself.

    • Hi guys,

      This receiver came with a loco I bought on eBay and I don't need it. I cannot verify that it works. Send me a backchannel message if interested.

    • Both sets are sold.

    • I just ordered an unlettered Climax, w/ DCC+sound, from Al Kramer. 


      Apparently, the prices he had on his web site didn't have proper shipping listed (it was way low), so those of you who got in on that really got a deal! 


      Anyway, his site doesn't have any listed at the moment, until they get all that straightened out. So I em'd Al, he said he'd take 10% off any of his Ebay prices. But the shipping is now around $50. Bottom line, $300.50 for the loco (including shipping) -- quite a great deal. 


      TW's price for the same is $399. However, the TW price for non-DCC non-sound is still crazy low, $199.


      Al mentioned he still had all 6 road names, just pick the item number (86093, 94, 95, 96, 97 or 98) from the Bachmann site and let him know. 


      In case you're interested, Al's address is:

    • Mine arrived Wednesday.  I didn't even open the outer box; just inspected for rough handling and finding none, tucked it away for the future.  I have a Porter I drove to Stroudsburg to pick up nearly two years ago that is still awaiting R/C.  I also have a 3 truck Shay I bought used this summer that is also awaiting R/C install.


      I am at a crosdroads for R/C.

      I have been using Del Taparo's original Rail Boss system for a long time. I still have a few controllers and receivers left, but not enough for everything. At this point I have two more locos needing R/C & sound than I have boards for.  I either need to find some second hand "Enhanced" Railboss systems or consider changing the entire fleet.


      If I change; I doubt it will be to Revolution since the built in sound doesn't satisfy my demanding ears and the one and only time I used the transmitter I fat-fingered the buttons putting it into the wrong mode at exactly the time immediate control was needed. There may have been a software fix for that by now - as this was a very early production model I was using.


      It's probably too late in my railroads life for Track Powered DCC without major wiring work,  but I really like the sound capabilities of the newer decoders; especially for diesels. So perhaps Airwire or Martin Sant's system might be where I end up.

    • I received my Climax after 5 pm today (Thurs. 11-21-19). Unboxed it, put it up on rollers and supplied track power to make sure it worked (it did). Hooked up a connector to the battery terminals in the bunker and set the switches under the r/h sandbox for battery pickup and large scale polarity(which I found out does ziltch on battery power) and hooked up my trail car that I use with my Shay. Everything works 4.0! Out to the railroad in the dark for a test run with a few pieces of rolling stock in tow. All is good in Saint Johns Florida. I like it!

      Tomorrow I'll lube everything. I'll use it at my train club event Saturday.

      What I meant was for the extra $40 you would have a factory installed sound system.


      Actually it adds up to $115 more (with the shipping) to get the installed sound system which I don't want in the first place.  $75 more for the loco and $40 more for the shipping.

      That is great Joe, good to know that, that is a great shipping price. Just out of curiosity, what carrier? Was it perhaps FedEx "home delivery"? I get that for bulky items, seems to be sort of a second distribution system within FedEx, even separate buildings down here in Sandy Eggo.



      The tracking # is UPS
