GeoTrax RC Set with Hauler & Big Rob - The Most Dependable Team

Time to get caught up on a few new items that were released around the end of the year. This RC set is a Truck named Hauler and Big Rob his driver.
Hauler & Big Rob- On Sale for $16.99

GeoTrax Hauler & Big Rob

When I first saw this set I noticed that the remote actually controls the middle car and not the front car. I was excited because I thought, "Wow, that would be cool to hook two remote powered cars/engines together." It would be like what you see in the real world...multiple engines linked together to pull a longer, heavier load.

This would be especially handy in the case of climbing hills when you have a longer train, which is so popular in the world of GeoTrax imagination. However, on closer examination I realized that the middle and front car appear to be permanently attached.

So Fisher-Price, if you are listening, just a little idea for you. It would be cool to have a remote powered car (with a loop on the front and a hitch on the back) that could link to another remote powered engine...for twice the pulling power.

Here is a link to the instruction sheet.

Ack, that's not removable?! Darn. I was thinking it'd be a great way to "RC-ize" some of the push-along trains. Maybe F-P will make an RC boxcar some day....

Wow, even better idea Bill. I am pretty sure it isn't removable but that is based on inspection within' the box. Anyone reading this actually have the set? If so, please comment on whether the front two pieces come apart from each other...I may need to buy this set now just to satisfy my curiosity.
