Most awesome model engine Kato has ever built August 21, 2013
Reviewer: Garrett Weeks from Chehalis, WA United States  
I just bought this engine for my layout and I can't wait to see it operate on it. Also the service was super fast I ordered it Saturday and it is going to be here and running on my layout later this afternoon. So it only took 2 days to get to my house. I am very happy with Model Train Stuff and their prices they are very cheap.

Kato GS-4 May 16, 2013
Reviewer: Joseph from Earlysville, VA United States  
I ran this locomotive for a total of 3 minutes before the motor/gears slipped out of place. I lost 90% of forward progression, and the engine wouldn't operate in reverse. It's a truly stunning piece...if it actually worked properly.

The service, however, was terrific and I couldn't be happier with Model Train Stuff. They're the only dealer I trust!

Outstanding service March 22, 2013
Reviewer: mlaff0842  
My first experience with Model Train Stuff was nothing short of excellent.  Kato 4-8-4 was delivered 4 days after placing the order and was in perfect shape.  The loco is superb, with good detailing.  It has great pulling power and I consider the best loco we have on the layout.  Thanks MTS.
