Untouchable Quality - Handle with Care
By jdw3rd April 28, 2014
Bachmann gets top of the line with this set. In my opinion there's no prettier train on the rails today than the Amtrak Acela and Bachmann has NAILED IT with this HO scale beauty. The detail is exquisite with bright paint, forward and reverse lamps, ditch lights and interior lights. The drive is designed to simulate prototypical performance and speed and it does just that! She comes up to speed smoothly and will roll to a stop when the throttle is cut so plan your stops accordingly or you'll overshoot the station! At full throttle she run at or above prototypical 150 mph which is beautiful and scary at the same time. The long cars and trucks will NOT work well ( if at all ) on radius under 22 and switches should be #6 for best performance. If you plan to operate her with other trains I'd recommend you have a siding to which you can isolate power because the interior lights are not controlled by DCC but are always on. BTW: To the best of my knowledge this set is no longer in production by Bachmann so GET IT WHILE IT'S HOT !!!
