I've just got my models yesterday. I am impressed. Very nice! Very nice! Like I said before I expected BECKMANN TT to come out with this model, since he likes to surprise the collectors and modelers with items that nobody else manufactures, but hey! 2 thumbs up for PIKO! One thing I've realized that PIKO tends to manufacture different batches (ROCO does that too), they release the same article number with different running numbers. Which is fine, I have no problem with that. All I care is that the models are build correctly and last a long time. Now, it's time to play!

Question to the TT experts: I do not like the way the model stops when I run it half (or medium) speed and shut (turn) off the power. It stops suddenly, no rolling effect as found in ROCO and/or TILLIG models. What can it be done (professionaly)? Change the value of the capacitors to a higher value? I don't know? I am just asking!

Only way to solve that is with a decoder or bigger flywheels.

Thanks ConducTTor! Another project (X 5). I will go with the fly wheels. I will try to fit new motors also. Back burner!

Here is another version of this type of loco that I would not mind having it.
