DCCTRAIN it runs better than it ever did. Here's a video from Alex of this TGV with the new decoders, LED's, and some good advice about decoders that I thought was interesting to share.
His point about how quiet it is spot on as well. I tested this in conventional mode before sending it and it was, as to be expected, a typical loud 1990's era motor. I don't understand the science of how back EMF makes it quieter, but it does work.
The strong angular lines are fantastic. I have to say, of all the great looking high speed trains out there, this older, classic design is probably my favorite. Even the somewhat garish orange color is awesome...it just says "notice me! I'm fast!" rather than the more mundane and sedate silvers and whites that seem to be the trend these days.
earlier. Have a great weekend!
