      They say they are using Muscle Wire technology. Muscle Wires are made of a
      special alloy that shrink and expand when an electrical current flows
      through them. Popular uses for Muscle Wires are robots and toys. The biggest
      problem is the current. I assume that when the power pack on the train goes
      to Zero, that the pantograph lowers - I could be wrong. I hope I can modify
      it to work with DCC!

      This is a really great idea, and looks like it could be a great product, but
      *very* expensive. I'm going to guess that it could be over $200 per
