This auction is for one lightly used, like-new Crest 10-Channel Train Engineer Walk-Around Control System, CRE-55470. It consists of a 10 amp power and receiver base station and a handheld transmitter. It can be used with any DC system in G, O, HO or other scale. Simply substitute the power/receiver base station for your existing cab throttle, then control it with the radio remote. It can also be used all by itself as a stand-alone throttle. The radio can select one of ten channels, so some people use them to power their DC layouts while retaining wireless control.I bought this one new in 2007 for $191. They are currently sold-out new,. but the retail price on the last shipment was $276. You, the bidder, price this auction of course, with a very low opening bid. I probably used this unit half a dozen times as a backup cab on my old DC controlled layout and for a display layout at a divisional meet. Everything included from the factory is here in its original box and in excellent cosmetic and working condition. Battery case in handheld is totally clean, with never any battery corrosion. The instructions are included. I try to charge as close to actual cost shipping as possible and will refund any difference in invoiced shipping costs over $1. Item will be well-packed and quickly dispatched.
