Hello,

We already have a 46605A speed controller from our Santa Fe Flyer HO scale set.

We are interested in getting a 91599 2-6-0 Mogul Large Scale locomotive, and wondered if we could use the 46605A with it?  If not, can you suggest which speed controllers would work with the 91599?

Thanks very much.

Not really a good idea, unless the controller is rated 3 Amps or better.

This is the only power supply controller in the catalog right now is the starter set one:

I do not know the rating but at best it is good for one locomotive only and 5 or six cars. 

If you will pull a lot of cars up steep grades you will need a better one.
