Hey guys I just purchased a Bachmann 4-8-2 Light Mountain and was curious, are there any issues that I need to look out for. Any suggestions to keep it running at it's best etc etc, thanks.

Bachmann has addressed the traction issues issues on the most recent light mountains, along with a rear operating coupler and more DCC freindly. However, only the UP and unlettered units have been upgrade that I HAVE SEEN. Hopefully the other roadnames will start trickling on to the shelves soon. Hmmmm.....I think I'll ask the Bach-Man about this      Huh?
