Here’s a new G-scale locomotive from Piko that I think is really interesting. This is the Santa Fe Warbonnet version, model #38509, and it is battery operated and includes realistic sound effects and a remote control… at an unusually low price.
If you’ve got an outdoor layout for your G scale model trains, or if you’re a newbie that’s looking to get in to large scale model trains as inexpensively as possible, this little switcher locomotive from Piko might just be the train for you.
You can buy this locomotive from Trainworld.com for well under $400 from this link:
I’d also suggest you buy rechargeable batteries (and a charger) for this locomotive, so that you aren’t constantly having to buy more disposable batteries for it. Here’s a link to the batteries at Amazon:
