Another quick update...

I went ahead and bought a 3rd engine, but it arrived DOA.
Lights on, nobody home!
So...
Click click, see ya later, back to the store you go!

I really like Atlas's rolling stock, it seems just a bit sturdier than the Micro Trains stuff. And it's generally priced better. I'm definitely not having the same kind of luck with their engines!

Breaking in the slower engine has improved it's running somewhat, but there's still a pretty big speed difference between the two. Not that it seemed to matter much. Hopefully the (replacement) third will be close!

The replacement arrived yesterday and works well enough-hopefully it will get a little smoother after break-in. It's speed is somewhere in the middle of the other two so I expect all three will work well lashed up together.

Btw, I don't know if the retailers read this forum but a big THANKS to Trainworld-first time I've had to return anything to them and the process was painless w/quick turnaround.

Today we'll see if they can get my target 20 up the hill.
