:thumbup: I like them all - all M62 varieties!! Roco did a great job, I think.

The second pic is great - and yeah, Roco did very well! If only they made the reverse lights light up........

@lutte - I agree, but I have noticed that their assembly is getting sloppy. Had to take the side frame off the yellow stripe one because the pick-up was folded into the wheel. There have been a few such minor repairs on almost every Roco I get. Perhaps I'm the problem. Haven't stopped buying them.

@The Boss - Mixed feelings about that one. I hate it that the reds are on when cars are coupled, which is most of the time. Unless you get decoders with extra function outputs you are doomed to the unnecessary back lights. Not a very cost effective, efficient or professional way for a chief engineer to operate a line. People get fired for that Haggis.

Glad you like the pic.

Yes, I've often read about diverse problems with Rocos new locos, especially their motors, but I myself have never had any with my BR 130/132/142's. So I'll definitly buy one M62 - minimum. :smile:
