I hope they address the scale dilema with that unit. Its way to small for use with any other narrow gauge manufacturer. Just try running a couple of LGB or Bachmann passenger cars behind it and it looks puny, like the diminuative loco's that pull the trains at Disneyland, 2/3's what they should be.

I believe they are supposed to be 1:29 scale but that makes them pretty odd looking next to say a Bachmann Connie.

I dont think they will rescale it though, even though in the long run they would sell a heck of lot more of them if they were 1:20.3. That would be way too logical.

Oh well, I look forward to seeing the "new and improved" version.

   Have fun with your trains
