Superb model The best model diesel locomotive on the market
The slow running performance is fantastic the best yet
BUT why o why did i have to go on line to access the instructions
on how to fit the bufferbeams when all that was required was one
sheet of paper to be included with the model with the instructions
printed on it SO MUCH EASIER

EWS Class 66 - Wow!

I was not a Class 66 fan, but just had to own one of these in EWS livery. A stunning model, both smooth running, and powerful. Now I regret not buying the sound version when I had chance.
