Nice locomotive. Looks a lot better in "real life" than on Tillig's pics.

Initial testing runs well.
I was a bit worried about decoder installation as it has a PLUX12 socket, and I didn't have any access to that type of decoder.
No worries though, there was a six pin cheater plug, plugged into a six pin to PLUX12 adaptor. So unplug the cheater plug, plug in a Digitrax DZ126IN decoder, then take it out and plug it in the right way, and all was good.
Now to start accumulating cars to run with it.

I had time to play with an ESU Mobile Control II throttle, the one based on an Android phone.

I was able to get the Z21 ap loaded and get it to run a locomotive. Not too painful.
The side buttons and speed knob will not work without updating the ap.

Initial impression is that it works OK but:
over engineered, over priced and the phone it is built on is a bit under powered.
Unless the Z21 ap is updated to use all the features of this throttle or I get an ESU system, I don't expect that I will buy one.
