Very nice AOF

How many different characters did they make in the push button type R/C control like Diesel?

Thomas, Percy, Diesel, Diesel 10 and a Victor I have seen.

Thanks AOF

I do remember these being on the store shelves years ago. Are they all the exact same size as their regular Trackmaster models. For instance are they a bit bigger to hold any more electronics in the engines. Does the remote have 3 positions...forward - stop - reverse?
[Image: super-smiley-emoticon.gif]
Forward stop reverse.
Pretty much all the same size as there normal version

Oh, I see you have the first Plarail Rebecca here at BPT's, what do you think of her?
[Image: super-smiley-emoticon.gif]
She is nice. Nicer than the revolution one.
But she has a feeling of being just a little cheap on the plastic. It is something I have noticed lately, They are just starting to feel a little bit like Revolution Plastic.
Not as robust as they used to be.
Just my option

HI All
Sorry I haven't posted in here for awhile.
I have been getting stuff in, but it has mostly been the small bits and pieces.
But finally I have a great post.  
I got a couple of auctions a little while ago on Japan auctions.  It then took me a while to get them back, and now it has taken me until a very wet day yesterday ( and very early start 4am) to get motivated enough to go through them for the second pass.
After spending most of the day replacing the basic Cog which is almost always broken to repairing or replacing battery connections I have managed to get 5 of these beauty's work.  They run great and sound great, BUT unfortunately 3 of them the most important part doesn't work.
You might have guessed what I am talking about, but heres a few pictures in case you haven't.

Thats Right Japanese Talk 'N' Action trains.

That ones that work awesome are:  Percy and the very back Gordon.

The other 3 run great as I have described, but the action function isn't working, so these have been put aside for what I call the Third pass.
PASS: 1 - Quick look to see whats wrong or right and to see if the motor works or they drive.
PASS: 2 - Start the basic repairs or replace jobs on trains. Cogs, Battery connections etc.
PASS: 3 - If they still doen't work fully then a full strip down of Motor and repair + Oil

So that is just a little of what I have got lately.

They all look in nice visual condition AOF even if they do require some TLC. Isn't that Diesel 10, Dodge and Splatter quite rare? Thats a very nice looking picture on the jigsaw puzzle box....finish it yet?
