Air Wire by CVP Products for the Bachmann K-27.
They make drop ins for the SD 70 Mac, GP 7/9, F3A &F3B and the GP38-2. and at reasonable prices I think. Check them out at
Which leads me to this, which I just found out today from CVP. They are in the process of making a drop in which works with the the Air Wire Decoder, which allows the Phoenix Sound System or sound system of your choice and battery power of your choice to hookups to there board. That sounds like an easy fix for the remote control for the K-27 and if the boards are the same for the 2-6-6-2 Logging Engine and the Forney, they have a gold mine on there hands for Bachmann. I personally do not know if the main boards are the same.
As to when it would be released, I couldn't get them to say when. Because if it's not ready by an announced release date, some people get upset and then bug them. And then there's always the people adding there 2 cents worth which usually make us all fell worse. Which doesn't help the product to be released any faster as the Bach Man and coworkers can relate to. Example... What's the next big steam engine to be released ?  It's still called anticipation, which I hate and I still think, sucks big time, but. So when it's out, it's out. As for me, Yesterday wouldn't have been soon enough.
So I hope this gives you something to look forward to, like me.
I haven't tried other decoders products in Bachmann products and I am sure they all work great too, but Air Wire is what I like, for now. I didn't mention other Remote Control Companies, because I would forget some one, this way I forget no one, and slit no one.. Just thinking out loud with my outside voice.
Happy Railroading
