Train runs well; a little bright on paint scheme
on December 25, 2007
Bachmann has a great corner on the affordable model train market; they know which trains are the classics and do a great job of making models that the average modeler can afford. However, with affordability comes compromise; there is no working headlight on this model, which if on here, probably would have added to the cost. Still, it has a good amount of power and will look great on your N Scale layout. The paint scheme on this model is slightly garish, though...maybe on a larger scale it wouldn't look so bad. If you have to choose a locomotive, I would personally pick Bachmann's B&O version, as it looks more authentic.
