Thank you for the reply. Do you like the quality of the trolley and trolley motor?
I have had it on my Christmas layout since last year, so I can't comment on it getting continual use. The only thing I did not like is the trolley shed that houses the electronics as well as the control knob for selecting how long the trolley "waits" before moving again. The shed is too big, plus, the trolley dose'nt go totally into it. I cut the shed back to the electronics area, added a front wall, and used what was left of the base for a passenger waiting platform. Someone with more electrical skills than I have could move the "guts" to under the layout.
The detail on the trolley is very nice. You can also buy some without Christmas markings for about $50. I paid $70. for the set, but most dealers seem to be asking $100. You may want to just buy the trolley, and then buy a "HO" reversing unit and regular "HO" track. I don't remember who makes them, but I've seen them at train shows. Joe
