The following is a list of failures
Erie-Returned twice both times for board failure
Southern Returned twice first for board failure second time it quit and they sent a different one
Southern The one they sent broke off a connecting rod screw after 1 hours running. I have yet to call for a return authorization because of the shut down.
NKP Front pilot broke
Polar express smoke unit and board failure
NKP #2 board failure
All the engines EAT traction tires after a few hours running on Fastrack or S helper track. The quality is not in these engines.
I will be buying any new engines from AMERICA MODELS. I have five from Ron and they all are flawless and they have been test run before they ship them to you with a lifetime warranty.
