Bachmann 2-6-6-2 opinions?
Anybody have experience with the DCC equipped 2-6-6-2 from Bachmann? Spookshow gives it a pretty good review and I'm about ready to jump on one. Lay it on me guys, what do you know?

Runs good out of the box, not great but good. Even better when you get rid of the Bachmann decoder and put somethhing better in. I installed Digitrax DZ125's and mine will creep.

Like the other 2-6-6-2 from Bachmann traction is weak. BF snot really helps. also some strategically place weight. It runs well, although I am not a DCC guy so no comment on that. detail is nice.Keep on rockin in the free world

Spookshow reviewed the 1st DC run and the last DCC run. The DCC run is supposedly quieter and smoother. We'll see.
