Would you pay just a few dollars less for a loco without a motor than with a motor?
Did you even read the thread?
I read the thread yesterday, but then there was but a few responses so I did not read Stuart's response which is similar to mine as my response was based on the responses then posted not the intervening posts made earlier today. So what is the problem?
If you want a dummy loco then remove the motor from a motorised unit. Has that response been made previously?
I apologise for my tone.
If I had two motorised units, I would use two motorised units. Would be a pointless effort to take the motor out of one of them wouldn't it?
