    After looking at the HE locomotive for the past week I like the design. It has to rank as the best new O gauge product of the year. It has style and a break through look that moves away from the 50 year traditional look of a Locomotive. I guess you can tell I don't see very many European locomotive but I doubt I'm alone in this.

    It is funny how a cheap regular locomotive can capture more attention than even the high tech detailed crammed electronic drones. it sure gets my vote for the biggest bang for the buck.

    Though it has one fault, it is very top heavy. This is the only locomotive that I have to throttle back just to make 0-36 curves. I feel this one should run on larger curves.

    So what did you pick the high priced dollar stuff or the simple HE. I have a feeling I would like this with a custom paint job. :thumb:
