Lionel PRR E8  6-39600

Great sounds, excellent slow speed operation, Legacy control, very good details (roof fans, hoses, etc).  Hatch on top for easy programming, easy to add Kadee coupler.
           Pricey considering only one powered unit.  Small negatives considering scale dimensions are: trucks stick out a little too far and pilot does not match body contour.

    Overall a fun and nice engine to have.  I replaced the front coupler on the powered unit only with a Kadee coupler to improve the scale apperance from the front.  This is the next best thing to fixing the pilot.
