How do you find this loco? http://www.bachmanntrains.com/home-usa/products.php?act=viewProd&productId=1855 I bought one from Beijing (Yin Ke Hobby Shop), and it was priced at a bargain. I don't like DCC yet, and DC engines are more affordable to me. I think it is a good runner. It does, however, make a little noise when running a little fast. Well, I'm comparing this noise to the one made by my Athearn Genesis F7A, so I guess it's not a fair fight. Overall, I'm happy with the engine. It was difficult to find a Southern bay-window caboose, though. So I just modified the paint scheme of one of my old Athearn wide vision cabeese. I know there is no such thing as a Southern red wide vision caboose, but I don't have a bay window caboose and I'm not strict about the prototype. Mike B.
