Bachmann makes some very good locomotives. The detail is good but not the best. For the price you can't beat this F7A if all you need it for is to run around a track. If, however, you need a loco that can creep and change directions without stalling, you should invest in a higher quality engine. This locomotive comes with Bachmann EZ Mate magnetic couplers. Although it is DCC, it runs fine on my DC layout. Bachmann says that all of their DCC equipped locos are backwards compatible.
