Will the new RS 3 come with flywheels?, also
Did the GP7 have flywheels?

This is important for me!

Well,
none of the Bachmann standard line GP7's I own have flywheels.

Here's the parts diagram for the GP7: http://www.bachmanntrains.com/home-usa/dwg/dwgs/N_GP7_EXPLODE_DRAWING__N642X.pdf  I seriously doubt that the RS3 would have flywheels either.

Hello David,
According to Bachmanns wbsite, the RS3 will have flywheels.

Rob's right.  This is a list of features copied from Bachmann's announcement for the RS3:

Features include:
• DCC-equipped for speed, direction, and lighting
• dual-mode NMRA-compliant decoder
• eight-wheel drive
• precision can motor
• dual, precision-balanced brass flywheels
• die-cast chassis
• finescale handrails
• blackened nickel silver wheels
• detailed exhaust stack and fan
• machined brass worm bearings
• prototype-specific headlights
• NMRA wheel profile
• E-Z Mateฎ Mark II couplers

The new GP-7 runs fine, but flywheels would only make it better. The RS-3 sounds like it's going to be a very nice engine.

Well I hope so, since I agree with Rob that flywheels are a good thing. My caution is that sometimes in their descriptions of new N products Bachmann has simply copied the HO description for the same model (though there are some differences in this case.) And don't forget the 5-pole motor that wasn't!

I think we have another bad cut-n-paste from an HO description..

DCC-equipped for speed, direction, and lighting
dual-mode NMRA-compliant decoder with 8-pin plug
all-wheel drive
precision can motor
dual, precision-balanced flywheels
super-quiet, helical cut gears
die-cast chassis
metal cut levers
finescale handrails
blackened metal wheels
prototype-specific directional headlights
RP25 wheel contours
E-Z Mateฎ Mark II couplers

The hi-lighted things are changed so there may be enough differences that it is new.
