Why doesn't Bachmann wire the motors with double motors in series? It seems it would be the best for smoother starts and the standard lights.

I suspect because there are some young folks "out there" that like to watch them operate at 'Warp 9.5' the way the old ones do in the "I Love Toy Trains" videos.

It'd probably add to the cost, but putting a switch in for "Parallel/Series" motor connections might be an option.

Dear Dave,

Perhaps they should sell series wiring harnesses as accessories. 

Hope this helps. 

Sincerely,

The Williams engines will still fly off the track with series wiring.  I don't see any down-side for engines with two motors coming from the factory with series wiring.

to me it would just be a wiring change at the factory and it would make them run better if they wired them in series. As stated you still can make them fly off the track wired in series but you have smother and slower starts when wired in series

I can run them down to a craw using PowerHous/Master sets and a Cab-1 in TMCC Conv.
