I disagree.  LEGO train operators that do big show often lament the use of batteries.  There biggest complaint is the need to constantly be changing and chargin batteries.  I think going to all batteries all the time would be a mistake.  just my opinion

It would be trivial to add a charging circuit that uses track voltage on certain parts of a layout (to avoid issues with reversing loops on 2-rail setups) to intermittently charge the batteries.  I think two unit lash-ups would work well here.  One locomotive with sounds, wireless/command, and motors; the other with motors and battery.  Steamers could do battery in tender.
