This locomotive has remarkable pulling power and quiet operation. It is pulling 5 coaches in the following video.
This is amazing considering that each coach has a lot of drag due to contacts on every wheel and 5 cars can be a strain on most smaller steam locomotive drives. Without this drag the locomotive will easily pull 6 or 7 cars.
Bachmann has really built a museum quality model with stunning graphics and a bullet proof, powerful, smooth operating drive & amazing detail and features.
Bachmann's has donated this model of Ward Kimball and Walt Disney's Emma Nevada (hope I got that right) and it is the most stunning and beautiful G scale model I have ever seen and we are proud to own it.
I think Walt Disney and Ward Kimball would be proud!
Many thanks to everyone at Bachmann Trains!
Check out this video on YouTube of this locomotive in operation.
This video was unprofessionally made by myself and volunteer kids from our program and since we are far from movie producers it may be a little less than perfect but we hope you like it anyway! The kids had some jerky locomotive operation at the end of the video.

Hope this information is useful and maybe some of you will have an interest in purchasing one of these locomotives. You won't be sorry!
All the best!
