WOW!! 1080 12-volt lead-acid batteries!! Sounds like the power source of a WWII submarine pirat

I run all my trains battery powered, so I'm very prototypical now!!!
Although, this one would really take me a while to re-charge...

Did some Google-ing; Europe had also their battery powered locomotives (so we are back on topic / continent again?):
