Nice! Can we have some pictures of the inside and does the light switch from white to red if you change direction?

It's not my photo...
But on the 5th photo you can see inside.

As I understood the light switches, the back lights are red.

It's good to see it pulling a healthy load - I was curious how much it weighs.

The guys from Ramenskoe told that it took 22 Peresvet's tankers on the 30 %o climb - i.e. 30 meters up on the kilometer way, or 30 mm up on the 1 meter way.

Just a heads up for the N.A. guys - Euro Train Hobby will not be carrying Piko anymore so if you want this model look to Europe. I suggest MBW24 (http://www.modellbahnwelt24.de/index.ph ... g&lang=eng)
