I have my eye on a Lionel GP-7 set from the early 90's with magne-traction, dummy unit with rail sounds. To date all my locomotives are MTH (not against Lionel per se, I've just stuck with what's worked so far) and PS-1 from the late 90s. I have a couple PS2 and PS3 locos as well, and strictly run conventional.
This set is within my budget, in a road name I like, and as far as I know - compatible with my Z 750/Z-1000 transformers (confirmation here appreciated).
If I go this route, am I missing anything versus getting another PS-1 loco in my budget? Any pitfalls to this, or things I should know? Any hearty go for it and here is why thoughts?
Thanks in advance
