On the practical side:
Ground throws will be a problem unless they are place a good distance from the rails. We had to set our throws several inches away just for the K28/27.
The problem that is of most concern is the additional width of the engine relative to running with other equiipment; will there be problems?
I do not think that most portable or layouts will have 8 to 9 inch centers for clearance of passing engines.
I think the K-28 is the best NG engine they have offered to date. I have owned various NG models and like the K-28 the best, good detail and wonderful running engine. I expect the K-36 will be similar but we will not know for sure until we see the pre production model, which I think they will do since we know the current prototype have been around for years. K-28s will be sold out before it gets here, so if you want a good running engine, get the K-28 so you have it while deciding if you want a K-36. My 2 cents.

I second that. The K-28 is Accucrafts best running NG model. I run mine all the time becuase I know she runs with no fuss.
