A relatively new manufacturer from China. The locomotive runs quiet and smooth out of the box. The model does show some flaw in the painting. The major flaw in the model lies with the coupler, which has too little swing in lateral movement.

I like the look of this locomotive. Just had a look at their web site. Doesn't show much N scale stuff yet, but I would be interested in what will become available.
