    Hooray! After a seemingly endless wait, my Broadway Limited C-16 has arrived! Just picked it up from the Post Office on the way home tonight. :thumb:

    I gave it a quick run, and boy! What a BEAUT!! Runs like a Swiss watch, and the SOUND!! Unbelievable! I put it on the track, cracked the throttle a tad, and she sat there simmering away. A little more, and off we chuffed! Come to a stop, and the brakes squeal. Reverse the polarity, and she gives a whistle.

    Man, oh man...I'm a sound convert now. When I finally get onto DCC, everything will eventually be sound-equipped.


    I took this quick picture to post while I give it an exhaustive tryout.

    Hi:
    I love getting new toys! Yours looks likek a beaut! I don't know anything about the C-16s. Were they exclusively narrow gauge engines?

    Have fun,
    Ted
