When Kato released its coreless-motor-based power truck, Larry Naus knew he had a critical component for his battery-powered locomotive project. In the June 2016 Model Railroader Larry describes his project in the article, "Battery power without compromises." Without any track power, Larry's locomotives perform smoothly and feature sound effects provided by a SoundTraxx Tsunami Digital Command Control decoder. Watch as Larry runs his locomotives on dead rails.
