(If this is too basic, let me know. I did some searching, but didn't find much...)
I am looking for basic info on Train Power Functions #88002
. I bought it and the battery box #8881
to power my Lone Ranger Constitution #79111
, so I can mod it and turn it into a Christmas train!
Tonight I did a test run, without regard to aesthetics. I put the 79111 on the 88002 PF trucks and connected it to the 8881. The train sped off at such speed that it flew off the tracks! I tried adding more weight and using the small wheels, but it didn't really help. I don't think there are any gears that can be switched or ways to set the power to half.
Is it as simple as having the #8879
IR Speed Remote Controller? Or am I missing something?
