Recently got back into G scale and acquired all the rolling stock in the Emmet Kelly series. I've seen older posts through searches by "Barry BBT" stating he had motor kits to repower the units and allow them to pull much more than the original. Unfortunately his website is down and he hasn't been active here since 2014. Anyone have any info on this topic?

Unfortunately Barry is in Hospice care and won't be building any more drives.  You might contact Bachmann and pick up one of the newer generations chassis for your loco. They may still be on sale for $55

Is there any update on Barry?
