    I'm thinking of a bouquet of purty flowers for @Moose2013. I think he needs a pleasant diversion from the disappointment with stubborn lettering.

    Default Bachmann Alco S4 with DCC

    In my 10+ years in the hobby, my first two Bachmann locos....EVER! I took a gamble based on Spookshow's stellar review of this - Bachmann Alco S4 switcher with DCC on board. He gave it an "A" and said it runs so silent you barely hear it. Pulls 14 cars on a level grade, what more can you ask for a switcher?

    My yard needed some small switchers and Trainworld was having a sale. $40 for the P&LE and $50 for the ATSF, both with DCC on board! They also have Western Maryland, UP and SP, all $50 each. Ordered Thursday, shipped Friday, delivered Saturday.

    Of course Mark was spot on. These are everything he said they would be. They are so silent that at one point I thought they stopped and had to glance over to the test loop to make sure they were still running. They were! The details, especially the handrails on the ATSF aren't up to the craftsmanship of an Atlas but for that price I'm willing to ignore it.

    Thank you Mark. If it weren't for your review I would have stayed way!

    I just purchased the Kato North Western 400 set from MB Klein. I also bought the light kits for the cars and installed them as well. This is a real nice set.

    Nice buy! How hard were the light kits to install and what do they actually look like?

    The light kits are an easy install but then I have probably done well over 50 different kinds of Kato passenger cars at this point. For a look at the kit and how to install watch this Kato YouTube video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PyU7oqyjXaM

    Expect nothing except the opposite of what you expect, and then expect it to be something other than that ! Then that's about what it will be
