Converting a Galloping Goose to Battery Power

These two pics are from super duper electrical genius Jim Williams work bench where he is working on a Galloping Goose. When we got the Galloping Goose it derived its power from low grade strips brushing against the axles of the wheels. If one had a totally flat track with no switches it might, just might be a runner. Our rolling stock runs outside (as well as inside) in all weather except in high winds. Hence the need to convert to battery power. Whilst in the gubbins Jim is adding an RC (Radio Control) card and a sound card. She’ll be coming round the mountain soon.
