Well,I'm at it again. Spending money on a train...such a bad habit. I couldn't help myself. I really couldn't. I found the ultimate deal on the Piko #36220 DCC/Analog sound system on Ebay. $155.00 brand new ,and out the door. I've been playing with my Piko camelback, and I really like it. A lot. It's a good puller,(factory installed #36220)and the Piko sound is excellent. Much better than the #36221 analog version.Plus, it has the smoke unit regulator built into the board.I bought a Seuthe 5 smoke generator for $22.00 on Ebay, which compares well with the Piko smoke unit.So, since Ebay is currently running a 13% cash back deal on all purchases made through their phone app, I decided to go for it. Requires a minimum purchase amount of $25.00, and you have to use the phone app to get the 13%. You get 8% back on the website .This is going in my Piko 0-6-0 Santa Fe switcher.I kind of thought about throwing the sound system in my LGB Mogul,but I might run into issues that I may not be able to resolve. The guy at Shourtline advised me to rip out all of the electronics from my LGB Mogul,including the tender,when I talked to him about it a couple of months ago.Hence my concern over installing the sound system in that loco/tender. It's going to be a while before I receive the #36220.I'll keep you posted as to how it works out!

Is there a pool of such like minded (and wealthy) women somewhere? :)
