I just offered 35 euro on 2 playmobil RC loco's (one 2 axle steamer and one 4 axle e-loc) including RC controllers. Perfect for scratchbuild projects. The add state they may both be gone for 35 and since the 14th no one made a bidding. This could be a bargain!
Just E-mailed the seller.
Keep my fingers crossed...

35 euros is a bargain if they are good and working.

The excellent single channel R/C equipment is easily worth that alone. I have used two in scratchbuilds and my only criticism is the moderately short range and they can be prone to intereference but otherwise great value.

I do hope the RC units work properly indeed... The railway is not so big but living in the city I suffer some interference with my normal RC units also.
I hope I can tell more later this week when the trains arrive.

They arrived! And they are great!



The red one did run directly when tested. Actually it was the intention to use it for a scratchbuild project but my youngest son (7) directly fell in love with it... But who can blame him?



So now he has a loco of his own (his brother and sister are teenagers, so no jealousy to be aware of...) , Hopefully its getting him hooked into the hobby pirat !!!



And a little movie in the twilight this evening:

The steamer did not run when arrived but after opening and cleaning up the electronics it did run (and very smoothly and silent also!). But this one definitely will be chopped up some day!

A video in the (even darker) twilight (sorry, no infrared / nightvision on my camera...).

As a wise man once said, "Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it." (Proverbs 22:6)

Looks like you have made a good start.
