Nice! How do you like the Halloween Mikado?
I have not heard from anyone else who bought one.
The Paint looks really good on these.
Only thing I don't like is that the orange paint was a lot glossier in the catalog, I was pretty disappointed that it didn't exactly match the advertising.
That being said it is my first LC+ Loco. I wish the volume was just a touch louder, but that is personal preference.
With those small things out of the way, I really like this engine. The blue tooth control works flawlessly. I may never put batteries in the remote. The bell is a deep church bell sound. The whistle and other effects are great too. I will post some video in the next couple days.
Regarding the sound level issue your remote may be different than what they've shown in the instruction because mine was like that on a different Lionchief set so in order to turn up the volume instead of hitting the whistle and the bell button at the same time and turning the power up you push the shift button on the microphone for sound you hold that button-down and then turn the power button clock wise all the way up and then let go of the shift button and you're all your volumes should go up hope that helps.
