Go large. Tam and Brigid sported around town and had a great shot of Chewie hanging out on a train.
Time to get the curmudgeon out. If Chewie is going to hang out on a toy train, I think he would prefer this power source.
Pre lawed up. Lionel ZW transformer for O gauge. Circa 1950's. I think you can electroweld with this thing, I have not tried it. 275 watts, runs two trains and has two variable voltage supplies for accessories. Rebuilding is not difficult, but there are much more reliable modern substitutes for the disc rectifier that runs the whistle.
Well OK, maybe I will back off a bit, going green and all of that. Maybe this:
Lionel KW transformer, 190 Watts. No variable voltage for accessories, but two fixed voltage ones.
Of course I will run this train:
The train I had WAY back then. I have not even thought about it but as I will put a track down around the Christmas tree I have a new in the box Southern set from Monroe Hardware before they went out of business. When MPC was running Lionel.
I have not considered running it, but perhaps now is the time.
If I do however, I need a Chewie to ride in it! Anyone know where to get one?
