Bachmann HO 65608 EMD GP7, PRR
Very pleased with this model for the price. You just need to add some momentum (CVs 3&4) and it runs beautifully. My model arrived with one of the headlight lenses not fully inserted, but I think that is just a matter of pushing it into the hole after the cab is removed. The Soundtraxx Tsunami decoder produces excellent sound - just realize that Bachmann omits some of the usual sounds, i.e., no air compressor or "Phssst" air release sounds. It's an excellent value, considering you get a very nice engine with DCC and basic sound (prime mover, horn, bell) and Hyperdrive for just a little more than the price of an aftermarket decoder. Sale price and 10% discount at Trains & Stuff was another plus.
