I think it is a totally canny buy - B unit powered as well? I am DCC illiterate, so is two power units (as in motorised)a pre-requisite for the boxed set of wot, 6 coaches? I notice that the Farish Blue Pullman set has two motorised units....

As Pauline Hanson (an Aussie politician) said:

Please explain.....  :beers:

All Kato A and B units are powered as standard George, so you can imagine the pulling power of an ABBA consist  :goggleeyes:

Yes indeed. Wonderful stuff.

I have no experience with double-heading N scale locos with 'matched' power units. Especially if they are at each end of a consist! (Of course, I'm thinkin' Farish Blue Pullman here.... :D...).

Lovely Burlington Northern stuff, though.

After something of a hiatus, eventually got a Black 5 as my birthday indulgence yesterday  :)



At last I can start laying the second circuit - will be checking the front "throw" of the Black 5 against the inner side of carriages to ensure clearage between passing trains.

Unfortunately, on taking this picture I noticed that the BR crest on the 3MT is a slightly damaged...  :hmmm:
They're there for their tea.
