Not great but pretty good July 12, 2012
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Long Island, NY  
Although identified by RMT as an Alco S-4, this locomotive is more generic than Alco.   Having said that, It is a nice looking and well put together O-27 type model with a lot of interesting features such as directional lights, a flashing light on the roof and a horn.   It easily pulls 5 to 6 O-27 cars but bogs down a bit if more are added.   About the only complaint that I have is that it is difficult to control at low speeds using an MTH Z-1000 controller.  As this locomotive is used on a dedicated loop of track, I resolved this issue by placing an 8 ohm - 20 watt power resister in series with the wire supplying power to the center rail.   One more thing, the sound of the horn is kind of like a cheap bicycle horn with a dying battery.    
The above not withstanding, this is a good locomotive, particularly for those modellers whose interests lean toward the conventional style O-27 layout.
