Took this last night on a temporary floor set up testing out a new track plan.

My impressions of the engine:

Engine is spot on proportionally.  Details are solid, not quite as good as some of the very latest stuff out there, but then this is slightly older tooling.  Still very good.  Comparing to photos, it’s got most everything critical in the right place.  It is lacking a little immediately above the drive wheels, but I am picky.

Sound and smoke wise, it’s phenomenal.  Best smoker I have, but it does guzzle through some fluid quick!  Whistle is the same from the first Legacy run and recorded from the actual 3751.  Whistle smoke is the best I’ve seen.

If you’re a fan of the 3700 class, you should definitely add it to your collection.

All the engines in your video are incredible, the blue goose looks great and is my favorite. Too bad Santa fell never did the blue goose just like lionels.

Santa fe's version is very nice but the Lionel version is way better.

Thanks and I agree with you. The SF 3600 is a stunning locomotive but it would have been nice to see it be continued into a northern. Like what Lionel did here.

TrainMaster04, can you tell me the make and model number of the locomotive with the green hull at 0:40 in your video??

It is one of Lionel's latest batch of EM-1s cataloged in the 2019 v2. The product number for this particular model is 2031110 and has the MSRP of $1700. I am currently trying to get a product review done on it and I will post it here on the forum under "What Did You Do on Your Layout Today."

Thanks TM; love that whistle; I have the 2031090 and, so far, runs great!!

TM,  Am I imagining it or is the whistle on your EM-1 the same one as on the VL and Legacy Big Boys??  Been watching your video above and some Youtube videos on the VL Big Boy. See: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q2ap0c6DWCM

OOPs; didn't mean to hijack this thread for the EM-1; will repost this question on TM's review of the EM-1 at https://ogrforum.ogaugerr.com/...0#151491806127049290.
