Hi guys, Cool

Walthers have currently reduced the Bachmann Spectrum 29161 Rail Truck to a super low price, and as such, I am thinking of purchasing one for the Hill End and Gronan Creek layout that I am building.

The truck is DCC on board.....can anyone tell me if it will operate satisfactorily from old straight DC? Smiley

Thank You. Cheesy

$61+, which for WKW is low, but still higher than many places. And, it's only on 3 of the roadnames, not all versions of the railtruck.

Thanks for the link, Bill.

Well, US$61 IS super-cheap to me, here in Oz.

Can anyone tell me if it will run from ordinary DC? Huh?

Thanks, blokes.

The favorite spot has them on the "buy it now" option for $54.
