      Good price. I have the same loco also wired for trail car. The lone holdout of my once mighty 1:29 fleet.  I think I paid $179 when they were current. In great condition should have gained value.

      Sorry for what may be a dumb question. What's "wired for trail car"? Does that mean it's battery powered and the freight car behind the engine contains the battery and decoder? If so, I don't think I've heard of a GP9 (or other USAT Geep) with the battery in the trailing car before.

      Track power pickup removed from trucks and extended to a connector near the rear coupler. R\C and battery follows in a trail car.

       

      Done to share battery, controller, and in my case, sound card among several locos.
