Lionel PRR E8 6-39600
Pros: Great sounds, excellent slow speed operation, Legacy control, very good details (roof fans, hoses, etc). Hatch on top for easy programming, easy to add Kadee coupler. Cons:
Pricey considering only one powered unit. Small negatives considering scale dimensions are: trucks stick out a little too far and pilot does not match body contour.
Overall a fun and nice engine to have. I replaced the front coupler on the powered unit only with a Kadee coupler to improve the scale apperance from the front. This is the next best thing to fixing the pilot.
