100 percent newbie here other than the fact that I've always liked trains and always wanted a set as a kid. I recently found a Lionel trolley cheap, which started me looking at other trains.
i don't have the real estate or the wallet for any serious layout. But I stumbled on this San Francisco street car and had to have it. It has proto 1 sound, which seems like it can be problematic based on what I've read.
So it just showed up and I love the looks of it. I replaced the battery with a BCR, based on the good info I gleaned here. Now my question that I haven't found a solid answer to.
What is a decent transformer for a guy on a budget who just wants to run his little street car around and hear
the announcements etc? I was hoping for instructions to come with it and a list of compatibles, but no such luck.
