WITH BATTERY R/C ENQUIRIES IT WOULD BE VERY HELPFUL FOR RCS TO KNOW:

Where you are? 
What the scale and gauge is?
Will the TX handpiece also be controlling Live Steam locos?
How many operators?

What is the loco you wish to convert?
Will the batteries and R/C be on board the loco or in a trail car?
