    Just over 2" without the flanges, I'd say 2-1/8" or 2-1/16" or something very close to that.

    I've had about a dozen or so hooked up at one time off that power converter thing, I think it does the same as the regular power pack. I'd find out for sure but I burned up my Kato one with a bad...

    I'm just hoping Atlas will roll the LL line of equipment into their parts availability. I'd love to have a few more LL PB shells without having to pull teeth to get them.

    How does it compare to the previous version of 2-8-0 (if you have one)? I'm curious if the mechanism is the same minus the new motor, making an easy upgrade to older ones. I just hope I haven't...

    I don't believe there is a connector at all on the wire end (mine doesn't anyway), it should have bare ends for use with other-than-kato transformers like MRC or older Bachmann/Atlas ones.

    There is a piece from Kato that allows you to attach turnout controls to an standard power pack, part #28-842, here's one as an example. I have 1 or 2 of these for my yard setup.
