  After reading all the complaints with bachmann products, have any of you had any experience with the new 45 ton switcher? S ???eriously considering purchasing one.   Thanks,  Jerry

Jerryl -

     I own one of the new 45 Tonners with DCC on board. They are excellent. The detail is very good and they run very well. They only pull a few cars but so did the prototype. They were not mainline power. I also have a 44 Tonner, 70 Tonner, an FT A & B set, two Shark (RF-16) sets and a GP-38. All the new style with DCC on board. People are very impressed when they see them operate at train shows. They are suprised to hear they are Bachmann. I think they are the best buy on the market today, and way underated. Other manufacturers may offer fancier decoders with functions that most guys don't use and sound (which I personally don't want) but they also are much more expensive. I don't think You will be disapointed.
