    Todd, i don't have the Blueline version of that engine, but i DO have the "full blown" BLI version(second run) with QSI. It runs VERY SMOOTH, and looks FANTASTIC, GREAT detailing, and the sound is SLAP AWESOME:thumb: . the blueline version is identical except it doesn't come with DCC, and the sound might be a little different. i hope the horn on the Blueline version is the same as the "full blown" version i have, it is BAR NONE the most realistic sounding horn out of ALL the engines i have:winki: .

    its a LARGE engine, don't know if it could handle 18r curves:confused: , the smallest curve i have ran it on was 22r. its very heavy, and will pull MANY cars:winki: . if you have the room to run this engine, i highly recommend getting one:thumb: .

    It can handle 18" but not very well. I'd recommend no less then 22"! My two units are AWESOME, both sound great. I have one Paragon & one Blueline.

    finally got to run my blueline csx ac6000 the other day and you guys are right, they are for lack of a better term AWSOME!. they run great and the sound is fantastic. i plan on getting more blue line locomotives in the future . thanks again for the advice.
