Williams Turbine

I'm curious as to the pros and cons of the Williams Steam Turbine

Runs too fast, like most Wms die-cast steam. I have one for a future bizarro project, though. Always were cute as a button.

FYI:

When I got mine years ago it would not run; I run command, but I did want to test its basic functionality. No go. Lit up; no go. I called Wms, and was asked if I had a lighted lockon (no - I'm a Hi-railer) or a lighted (incandescent) car on the track. He said put one on - and it ran. Those reversing units had an impedance issue when there was not a light bulb in the circuit (shades of early DCS).

The loco headlight was an LED, so that didn't count.

Thanks, all, for the replies.  I'm also interested in a Lionel #6-8408 turbine.  Any thoughts on that one ?

I will be running conventional exclusively, as I am planning a Post-War type layout.
