    I would not buy it for use on O-27.

    Please keep us posted, as you move forward. We do have an "S" area ready for your use. :)

    Do you know what the hardest part for me in making the decision was?

    The MTH Railking GE ES44AC Evolution Hybrid. Since I started looking at getting back into the hobby this was the #1 locomotive that stood head and shoulders above the rest.

    The closest thing I could find in S scale is the Lionel SD70ACE EMD Demo/ElectroMotive so that will have to do.

    I think when I analyze the things I like it would be very modern Diesels in paint schemes not seen repeatedly throughout the ages. I still want to get a steamer but I don't know enough about them to make an informed decision.

    Even though O scale can make sharper turns I still want it to look natural while doing so. I'm still going to join an O Scale club and who knows maybe I'll buy that MTH and run it on their layout. I still need someone to show me the ropes on maintenance and repair.

    I always admired S, but there was little enough available and it was expensive enough that I stuck with HO. S is just the thing for Hot Wheels and Matchbox collectors who want to arrange that collection on a diorama, though.

    There are many, many SD70ACe engines in service right now. You should be right in there, buying one or more. :)
