Has anyone checked the wheel gauge on these?  I have a friend who bought one of the E's from the very first PCM run and he had fits with the wheel gauge.
Best regards,

Roger

I just bought one of the BLI E7s, and I was in such a hurry to test its sound capability out that I placed it on the rails without first checking the gauge of the wheels.  That said, it's been operating through my Code 55 track (with #5 and #7 turnouts) without so much as a hiccup for a few days.  It runs very well, and I have had zero tracking problems.  I love it.
