well I got my hog pack today.  :D  The T1 runs like a fine swiss  watch on my coffee table .    I have no idea  on how many cars it can pull but I like what I see for now.

They're up on MB Klein's website, now. I'm still impatiently waiting for a cc charge or confirmation email from BLW/HogTrainz...

Its here!!!

Turning the volume down to about 1/2, after all I am in the same county.
Looks great, runs nice.  Throttle response is a little odd in that a decrease in the throttle 5-7 units on a Digitrax DT400 almost stops it then it re-accelerates to the new setting, time to break out the manuals.

Had to throw a 215 olm resister across the rails to be able to read the decoder (Digitrax  Super Chief system)

More to follow as it gets broken in.

According to this morning's email mine shipped today

Yo Pete, you going to dissect yours and take pictures? Will save me a great deal of trouble if you do  :D

FYI, I've been running mine around in circles for about 24 hours so far. Very sweet runner!

I will, but I know that you want to publish your reviews "yesterday" while I'm more of a snail.

I still owe you some Sakatsu Big Boy photos and info. That was like 5 years ago, right?  :facepalm: :D   Granted, this is "fresh meat" and I'll try to dissect it soon, but it will likely take a week or two. This weekend (both days)  I'm attending the local Greenberg Toy and Train show, but I might get some dissecting done in the evenings. We'll see . . .

EDIT: I guess nobody yet noticed that the paper insert shows "HO scale" on the side of the box.  :)

Mine says HO Scale on the sides and N Scale on the ends. I didn't realize that the PRR did narrow gauge.

Excluding the couplers it's just a hair over 9".

Yeah, I don't think a couple of weeks (or five years) is going to cut it, lol. I guess I'll have to crack it open myself.

Have fun!   :)  And if I go in deeper than you, I can still send you some photos to be added to your review.
