If it is the new 0-4-0 that just came out, then yes it is a great locomotive. I currently do not have one, but I plan on getting one eventually. I have seen them run and they are smooth runners. The new one is somewhat larger (due to it being in a different scale) than the old one, and actually has enough room to fit battery RCS and sound. The old one had some trouble fitting sound in if it already had battery RCS inside.

snog pass thanks for the info,I suspected it becuse bachmann redesigned the drive in the 4-6-0. It must be a thing with bachmann yet a good thing they do .All of my spectrum ho locos were redesigned. Well I'LL wait for xmas to buy one.once again thanks
