I am looking at one of these neat little switchers, in the UP scheme. It was made in 2009, and has dual motors. But, I have a few questions:
1. What does it mean by K-Line "by Lionel" ??
2. Does anybody have any hands-one experience with one of these? In particular, does this diesel have the dreaded "derailment" issues that some of the earlier K-Line switchers demonstrated? (I have previously researched on this board a line of K-Line switcher made in the 1990s, which had chronic derailment issues of the front truck when going over regular Lionel 022 switches?)
3. Does this model have the fixed couplers that cause derailments of the rolling stock?
I never use my engines to "push" cars around, only pull them.
Thanks for any info.
