so i recently aquired a lot of used G scale items including several bachmann bobber cabeese, an LGB stainz, a USA trains 44 tonner, and a New Birght C&NW prarie (2-6-2) and the new bright loco is rather interisting i was planning on bashing it into something loosly based on a great northern H-5 pacific or something similar but i don't know if its the proper scale (i model almost exclusively 1/24th and 1/29th) or if it will run on my piko power pack till i can outfit it with battery and bluetooth control

I acquired one of the 2-6-2 locos in a similar stash. General opinion was that were/are decent runners if a bit old. The scale is nearer 1/32nd so it looks a bit small for 1/29.
I tested mine on rollers with a 12V pack.
