Good points of view and reviews.

PS The Berkshire manual on page 15 also provides incorrect volume control directions.  Correct: Hold down the cab chat/shift button while turning the throttle knob to desired volume.  Not the bell and whistle buttons at the same time for 3 seconds or more.  All that did for me was simultaneously sound the whiste and bell.  Learned this from watching an AF Berkshire YouTube video kindly posted by a train club. Or, of course, use the LionChief app which I think is terrific with the additional functions and adjustments that you can access with it. 

Lionel can get it right on some occasions. If you purchased the Frisco 4-8-4 Meteor Northern the included manual gives the correct directions to adjust the volume using the remote on page 11. Those same instructions will apply for the Geeps and Baldwins:

Here are a couple of pictures of the Patapsco Baldwin that FedEx delivered to me today:20190102_17515420190102_175206

So far it runs great.  Wish I had ordered the CNW one too!

FlyerMike...I too have the new Patapsco engine and enjoy it very  much.

I have a favor to ask of you. My engine was delivered in the wrong box. Mine was labeled for the NS switcher. I don't want the hassle of returning the engine and maybe get one that has something wrong with it just for a correct box.

If you have a scanner could you please scan the end of the box (with the Lionel sticker on it) yours came in and post that picture here? That way I can copy and print that box end on label paper and stick it over my incorrect box label?

Here's what I have now:

box end 4

If you could scan your label end of the box it would be a big help.

Thanks,

Mark

Hi Mark,

Unfortunately, I don't have access to a scanner.  I tried to take a picture of the label with my cell phone.

Hi Mike, that worked just fine. I was able to take the info from your label and work it into a new label on my ancient "Paint" program and print it out on some label paper:

PBR label

Thanks again,

Mark

My son running the C&NW with the IPad.  

I was disappointed with last years flyerchief GP7.  The Baldwin blows it away.

Ben,

The Baldwin looks and sounds great.  But I have one of the Geeps from last year (UP) and it performs great too.  I cannot see or hear any difference.  And my 7 year old grandson loves it, especially with the Flyer Chief controller.  For him, it's tied with the Polar Express, and that one was in a movie

And the Bluetooth option is kind of cool to me.  It give you more flexibility in adjusting any functions.
