Default Bachmann Spectrum Mogul: Battery & RC

My locomotive is listed for sale on eBay: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Bachmann-Sp...y/264370564525


Here for sale is an early edition Bachmann Spectrum Mogul. Overall, it is in good condition but shows its age with a few scuff marks, paint chips, and small broken or missing detail parts. Currently the headlamp does not work. There have been some custom modifications done such as light weathering, different cattle guard, smokestack, wood load (un-prototypical but looks nice), etc. Mechanically, the original gearbox was changed out with a much more robust unit from Aristo Craft. It is far more durable and powerful that it was originally but the original gearbox is included along with a NWSL upgrade drive gear.

The locomotive is also fitted with battery power and radio control. It is a clean setup but the radio control is admittedly a bit primitive, particularly that it lacks good speed control. This combined with the slightly higher gear ratio from the Aristo Craft unit means that the lowest speed is not very slow. However, it would be very easy to change out the RC receiver/transmitter with something better.
A charger is NOT included with the locomotive. However, the charger required for this engine is a Tenergy Universal Fast Smart TLP3000 1.5A Charger for Li-Ion/Li Polymer battery pack (14.8v 4 Cells).
I do not have the original box for this locomotive but it will be packed with the utmost care. If you have any questions, feel free to ask.
