In my latest copy io Garden Rail there is a product release advice (Fall Issue 19) of an on board Battery System from Piko. Ref 35040 with reciever and pocket remote at USD 99.99. Are also listed on Gaugemaster Website at Pound Sterling 70. Sounds much like the system in the eagerly awaited RC 25 Tonner. With a Voltage of 7-22 this may be one to keep an eye on for those that are looking to dip the toes in Battery RC.

They are also introducing a trackside mains transformer powered version using the same remote. This may, in some circumstances, prove a suitable but lower powered replacement for the old Aristo/Crest train engineer.
