    We are thinking of buying a couple, how do they run, any problems?
    What is the min. radius they can go around and still look good?

    Thank You

    I've never heard of InterMountain producing 40-T's. I just checked the Walthers catalog and don't see them. Tell me more -- including the road names, if you have that info. (incidentally, I have a pair of InterMountain's F7 units, and they are sweet-running loco's -- very smooth.

    Not heard that they have any running problems, but don't buy ones from the first batch released, these had some hefty shell issues. Warped walkways, glued together, rivets the size of tennis balls etc. I'm told these have been corrected in the later releases, so should be a good buy.

    Dear "Trains":
    Whoops! My bad! I just realized that in my previous post, I was assuming you were referring to an HO product, but suddenly realized you're working in N. I'm envious -- I wish InterMountain would make a 40-T in HO guage. They produce a quality product.
