For what it's worth.

I'm gradually dropping all my Aristo products. Engines are gone now. Forty foot cars are next. They're all just fine. No complaints at all wrt running properties or reliability. Just not real happy about the products he has chosen to model. Must be the western prairie modeller in me. Anyway, when you have a defined space and a fixed track plan you have to prune your stuff as new items come on line. Aristo's cylindrical hopper would have changed my feelings but he went for something I have no interest in.

USAT items are more finely detailed IMHO but that doesn't make them better - only different. Yes they hog power but I've been running my fleet of GP9's for about 10 years now. No issues that I can see.

In the end, go with what you like.
