Yeah, with the gearing on this thing, combined with the Loksound motor control, it's pretty fun watching the gears turn as you creep along. Seriously slow motion.
I took a ride on a real one -- well the car behind, in Nevada I think it was or possibly California. Anyway -- it was pretty neat, had a lot of wild noises and things going on.
