One Painted Yellow With Black Stripes & Unlettered GE 44 Ton Switcher
Bachmann, in the latest release of these 44-Tonners, managed to smooth out the gearing.
This thing will crawl... I mean CRAWL!!
Also, for it's small size, it can still shove 8-10 cars around a yard! This ISN'T a road Diesel, so I didn't bother with hills.
YES, the factory decoder Sucks and Buzzes... It's the only thing I can pick on with this smooth, tiny loco.
REPLACE the B'Mann decoder with a TCS or NCE - even their bargain $17.00 decoders, and you'll have to turn everything else off - just to be able to hear it run!!
I wish I could buy three more!
