Hi Marty, Your probably right, but it is going to help me out alot as far as running a train on the spur of the moment. Wanted to build a bigger shed but the wife said no as we have our contract at work [with tight ass TYSON] coming up in January. Last contract we took a 5 year wage freeze, so we are taking a big hit now with gas and everything else going up .
Bad news for me!!! I pulled a dum on. I was checking out track switch and track inside my shed with my Mallet. Yes, I left my metal square laying on the tracks and I beleive it shorted something out in the Mallet. Won't run now. Will probably send it to Aristocraft and see if they can fix it. There goes my only battery powered engine for your" thingy". I still plan on coming down on Sat. tho.
