I would like to thank  Marty Cozad for showing me how to make up and wire a battery car for my Mallet and for answering several questions I had while at the " GREAT TRAIN EXPO " in Council Bluffs, IA. Feb. 9th & 10th. I also want to thank the RIVERCITY RAILROAD CLUB for letting me test run my NOW battery powered Mallet on there club layout on display at the show. I also enjoyed talking with Club President, BUBBA and also Don. Nice to put a face to some of the members here at myLargescale. You have a nice club layout and I noticed many smiling childrens faces admiring your trains [ BIG AND SMALL].                  PHOTO of MALLET ON RIVERCITY RAILROADERS CLUB LAYOUT:

A fine bunch, those Rivercity guys!

I put the batteries in my Mallet's tender. Same technique Marty is using there except I use 2 R/C race car packs 'stead of a drill battery.

 I was glad you could visit. Having the show makes it even more worth wild. I think you could catch on to RC battery power easy after seeing it done once. And looking at what was done later

Leonpete,

 It was nice meeting you.!  Wish you could have stayed longer. After watching your mallet I think I need to get one. 
The gang is going to have to make a road trip up your way when it gets a little nicer out.

Hi Dave,
 I think I am up to 13 IC cars and 1 IC GP30. My favorite road name. I just purchased another IC reefer like the 2 pictured below off e-bay. These were the 2006 MWLSTS cars but the show was cancelled.

OH, I painted the house last summer so it looks a lot better. Worst part is it took most of the summer so I didn't get much done on the railroad. Hope to do more work on the railroad this summer.
