    Does anyone have experience with Stewart Hobbies? Would you recommend them?

    Yes and yes. I have their FT's and I love them. They run smooth and pull well.

    I have a Baldwin S12 switcher.while its a mighty smooth runner and looks great once you add the details..Sadly mine had a sight glitch..The front truck keep derailing going through my Atlas #4 switches. :( Thankfully it was a very easy fix..The pickup wire on the lead truck was binding the truck causing it to derail..I simply reposition the wire.. :D

    I have a Stewart Hobbies FT and F7 set for the SSW/Cotton Belt RR and I do recommend them highly.
    They are some of the strongest pullers on my model railroad,however they are pretty heavy too.

    Have a Stewart S-12 using a Lenz Gold-JST decoder. It is very smooth! Detail quite good.

    They are on a "sale" shelf at the LHS. Mostly switch engines. These had a suggested retail of $115 and they are asking $65, not quite half price.

    , and they run well with Athearn Genesis F's! I have a Stewart FT A and B with an Athearn Genesis F, painted in WP silver and black. They run very,very well!
