Some may say this is only for kids.....
But here's why I love this & other Bachmann Thomas cars, trucks & locos.
- bright crisp & clear paints
- smooth runners. Heavy metl wheels
- so easy to put the on the track. No retailer - tools needed. My kids do this so easy.
Perhaps only thing I can think of that slightly negative is that the hook style couplers are not do easy to uncouple - though coupling is super easy & smooth.
Definitely some of Bachmann's better HO stuff !
This is a very obscure piece of rolling stock, but it does look very nice. I think all of the Bachmann Thomas tankers look great. In my opinion, it fits pretty well in a long line of freight cars. it stands out but not in a bad way.
