No, but I've been tempted. I'd really like to build one of those LORAM rail grinder outfits one of these days, but since that's sure to be a massive undertaking, I'll probably give up and buy some of these. :)

Hey Ryan. The models in the last pic above are in stock at my LHS. They look pretty good, but would respond to a little weathering well. His price is only $45. I'm real tempted... :D

Grande Man,
I seen them running at a show last summer, they seemed to do OK. Only thing is I couldn't find anything proto to match them up to, seems that Bachman made them up.

The LHS owner put a small decoder in one of his. :cool:

As for Bachman making them up, I'm not to surprised. I'm still thinking they would be a nice addition, especially the highrailer truck.

I got a speeder set a while ago, did a little detailing. Took off the weird looking crew and replaced them with some sitting figures. Add a strobe light and radio antenna to the roof. Painted and weathered the rest of the set. The last car is one of mine - my little guys need someplace to go!

The speeder being pretty light, wants to travel relatively fast so it doesn't stall on poor track, joints or turnouts. Can't expect much more I guess.

It's that big gray box between the crew on the speeder!
Dang what do they got in there, a KEG!? *of, um, coke...*

Nice though, I like, I sould buy some stuff like that on the cheep at my LHS and detail it, I'm sure it'd make a nice hit!

The tamper unit is close to an actual prototype, and yes requires much weathering! They do run pretty good tho, at least the ones I've seen. I picked up one of the older unpowered versions at a flee market that was made long agao by a european company, pre Bachman.
Some day I'll post some of my home "groan" powered highrails.
