Not economical but as an FYI you get one of those connectors with the curved station J-26. See back of the box here:

It's handy because then the curved station can connect without reversing it, regardless which way your track goes.

Oh hey, I was just wondering about the C12 that just came in from Japan literally today. I saw that snowplow set in an auction at some point and compared with the pictures of the auction I had won with it in and noticed the front hook. I can confirm it has a metal motor housing which is activated by the lamp on the runningboard which is connected to a lever underneath, kind of looks similar to the metal switch on the Round-Trip Plarail stuff.

The motor makes a loud, metallic click every so often, by design I hope. It uses the rim drive mechanism with the smaller rubber wheels on the side of the motor that drives the traction tires instead of driving the axle.

Thanks Duck, that answers all the questions about the C-12. BTW, that one you have there looks to be in perfect condition for such an old release. I had never seen an on/off switch like that on the metal motored trains only the metal lever. The must have had to come up with this design because of the engine being so close to the rear of the rotary snow thrower. By any chance was the snow thrower in that auction? Thanks for showing us those detailed pictures. Hope to see you around here more often.

Yeah, I figure they added the lamp slider to make it easier to turn on and off with the thrower attached. Unfortunately it wasn't included. I couldn't find the external switch at first even with it in my hand, didn't even notice the overhang until I moved the metal lever manually from the bottom. I'm definitely surprised it's survived in that nice a condition, does need new rubber bits though. Will have some other stuff from the auctions I ended up with to post about eventually
