O Gauge Polar Express Question
« on: October 11, 2017, 05:54:55 pm »
I have an O gauge Polar Express set, an older one, that has the big transformer where you control the train from.

I just purchased a new REMOTE control/bluetooth Polar Express engine and tender, model 6-84328-E.

My question is what do I need to take advantage of all the functions this newer engine has? I.E. power supply, transformer, special power track etc...?

Thank you in advance

You need track (usually FasTrack) and the terminal track.
The DC power supply for the layout is needed also.

You have everything you need with the first set. Use the transformer that came with the first set just set it at the max speed you want to run the locomotive at and control it with the remote or Bluetooth app. If you want to expand buy more track and switches but you need nothing else unless you want more.
