This is an attractive operating display for your office or test bed for your workbench for HO locomotives up to 15 inches in length. Unfortunately this is not large enough for Big Boys, Challengers and other articulated HO locomotives if the tender is necessary for electrical pick-up.
For USA customers a power supply for standard home 120V outlets is included.
