I wasn't aware revell made electric trains. Does anyone know anything about them? I found nothing on a ho or forum wide search. I've built many of their plastic models... Thanks in advance.

Time machine in reverse

They where made many years ago. I had an 0-6-0 tank engine that had a smoke unit, and an internal container of tiny loose lead pellets. A cam on one axle rattled the container making a chuf-chuff sound.

There is one on ebay right now!

I think maybe Revell also did a diesel switcher, but again that was many years ago. On that thread, Lindbergh also made a diesel switcher, an SW-7/9 IIRC. It had a flywheel made out of several large steel washers attached to the motor shaft.

This site may be of interest to you as far as Revell. https://www.hoseeker.org/revellinformation.html
And as long as you mentioned plastic models made by Revell.https://www.oldmodelkits.com/ Who didn't build some of these growing up. They also list train kits of various makes. Though I must warn you, looking at some of these kits might make you want to reach for your wallet. ;)

Cool! Thanks and my wife just spent some, so I won't feel too guilty. Hahaha

Whoa! Just glanced at the sites and they ARE TOO COOL! Thanks. I'm also building model weapon systems for our American Legion Post.

Here's a site that shows much of the Revell HO line.

http://tycotrain.tripod.com/revellhoscaletrainsresource/index.html

It also notes many of the items that later ended up in AHM, TYCO and Con Cor hands. A few Revell items might still be in production today via Con Cor though possibly in modified versions.

I'm pretty sure I still have a Revell flat somewhere. I had more but I sold them. Not because they were bad, they just didn't fit my era.
