    Quality Control

    Posted by M on Sep 21st 2018

    This was the first time I bought a BLI engine, and the chuff sensor doesn't work. From a quick glance online, this seems to be prevalent on Paragon 3 engines. The model looks great, most of the sounds (sans chuff) are great, and the motor control is excellent. But this is basic stuff that should have been corrected before leaving the plant. I'd understand some quality hits on lower-priced models, but at the prices BLI asks, I shouldn't be seeing issues. Fortunately, their product support team is quick with their responses.

    I was very pleased with the BLI 4-8-4. I am fairly new to DCC trains. The BLI looks good and runs well even at slow speeds. It did not come with smoke fluid so I bought some. It does smoke well.

    Over all I think it's a great representation of the real 4-8-4.
