Maybe someone can help me - i want buy MDT Plymouth with new, silent motor new, silent motor, but not understand how to found them.
Trader say - "You need found 5-digit identificator". I see in  Bachmann store - five MDT Plymouth with different numbers (one o them i now have, but no success - old noisy motor inside).
How to identify MDT Plymoth with new can motor?

I received GP7 today. Yes, forward run its quieter than my best Kato locomotive (backward - bit louder). Not silent like freight car, but very good!
I like Bachmann DC/DCC decoder - i can use this loco on my analog (DC) layout without any modifications! Out-of-box run great!

Try with DC voltmeter. Standard red/black wires red is "+" black is "-" (Before test with some battery - AA or AAA size or other).
If digital voltmeter is displayed "-" sign before numbers - red/black wires is сonversely connected.
If zero or many fast changing values displayed - AC (not DC) on contacts.

If any engines stops - maybe problem is outside of this engines? Maybe power wires to tracks or power unit failed?

Yes, true.
I have some (Kato) locomotives. All have some noise. Best is Kato EMD SD-40. Others are louder.
I dreaming about most silent n scale locomotive.

something like this - can hear rails and wheels, talking people around, but not hear engines and gears.

I want push platform with camera before locomotive - any possible noise need suspend (not add noise).
Some time ago i try build silent pusher from Kato passenger car (with illumination). I mount little motor with propeller (from old Silverlit helicopter). This construction run without noise (wheels noise are higher). But force is low - even few degrees up track  and all stopped ...


Its coreless motor

Can You test them (Bachmann NV-2) for me? Maybe You can make some little video? (If this locomotive can run - not defective)

"matter of perception" - can i hear wheel sounds un track sticks - its can be criteria?
12  Discussion Boards / N / Re: GP7 locomotive - most silent? on: November 11, 2015, 11:40:45 AM
But Bachmann NW2 have coreless motor, GP7 only can motor (from item descriptions in Bacmann WebShop) - how you can explain - coreless motor are more noisy?
13  Discussion Boards / N / GP7 locomotive - most silent? on: November 11, 2015, 10:52:57 AM
Really GP7 locomotive is most silent? Or switcher NW2 are quieter? Maybe another locomotive are better in this case? Maybe somewhat is GP7 owner an can tell real situation?
