This video features an earlier version of the drive installed and operating in a Red Caboose GP9. The locomotive is running on a glass table with a dead rail installation. Power is provided by a single A123 battery.

This next video is a bit clearer and features the drive kit with a custom-made flywheel added.

This kit is a perfect match for our Red Caboose GP9 metal frame upgrade.

This drive kit is NOT INTENDED for the stock motor setup.
