To add to what Flare said about your track with extra wire. The extra wire won't have any effect on  your train running.

If you are just going with an 18" circle, you will need 11 pieces of #44501 curve. 1 piece of #44502 curved power track with rerailer.
If you make an oval with straights, you can use the straight power with rerailer piece #44510 and 1 piece of #44511 9" straight on the opposite side.
This is the gray roadbed nickel silver track which is much better than the black roadbed steel track because the steel track can rust.
Bachmann's "E-Z Command" is their basic DCC set up. Part #44932. I use it for my Christmas layouts. I can run at least three trains with it at the same time I haven't tried it with more.
If you go with DC, their DC power pack and speed controller is #44211.
It might be cheaper for you to just buy a set rather than individual pieces. Their current ones are the "Norman Rockwell American Christmas Train" #25023, the "Spectrum Yuletide Special Delivery Set" #25022 and the "White Pass & Yukon Passenger Train Set" #25024
There are a few other sets on EBay.
If you buy the loco you indicated and you want sound, you also have to buy the sound module #44957 to put in it.

It would drive some people plum crazy if they had to watch my O27 "General" on standard O27 track. I could probably put a mower blade on the pilot to keep the weeds down along the outside of curves.

When I looked at that one, it reminded me of all the folks on here who complain about people trying to run big locos on tight curves and the overhang it creates. Grin

Dupo was just across the Jefferson Barracks Bridge from me in my teenage years and where we could go to make underage beer runs.

Possible crews' quarters for logging layouts on the ground instead of on the truck?

I concur. Very neat. I wonder too about the animation. Metal on the items and magnets on a belt under the base?

Boy o boy. I'm glad I have one less thing to worry about now. Grin

Hello Jose. I translated this for you. You can use this to translate any replies you receive in English.

Using the trusty translator:
HELLO GOOD AFTERNOON
I HAVE A TRAIN SET ON30 ITEN NO. 25018
MY QUESTION IS THAT I WOULD LIKE TO EQUIP THIS EQUIPMENT WITH THE DCC SYSTEM THIS MODEL ALLOWS IT TO INSTALL OR I HAVE TO PURCHASE A NEW SET OR SIMPLY BUY A LOCOMOTIVE WITH THE DCC SYSTEM AND ITS RESPECTIVE SOUND MODULE.
ADDITIONAL I WOULD LIKE YOU TO HAVE THE SYSTEM THAT PRODUCES SMOKE OR STEAM.
AND BE A MODEL WITH CHRISTMAS CHARACTERISTICS
41  Discussion Boards / On30 / Re: How about adding a 2-6-0. an 8-18d 2-6-0 on: September 26, 2018, 11:45:18 PM
I'd like to have one. It was a really big deal backdating my Mogul.
Then they could also offer it with a longer boiler and a 4 wheel pilot on it and have a 4-6-0 so it would look kind of like #3. I know #3 wasn't narrow gauge.
42  Discussion Boards / General Discussion / Re: EZ Command Control + Non-Bachmann DCC Locomotives = Compatible? on: September 26, 2018, 10:48:02 AM
The E-Z Command is what it is - Just basic DCC for those who aren't inclined to go deep into DCC. I use mine for my Christmas layouts when I don't need to haul out the "big guns" and it suits my purpose.

I have 4 or 5 of Abdill's books, also and I love them.
44  Discussion Boards / General Discussion / Re: Random steam pics thread on: September 24, 2018, 11:21:00 AM
I see that now. That's an interesting way to do it.

On that India one, are those upper wheels like a flywheel to keep momentum going? If not, what do they do?
