Well at the Moors valley G scale weekend we were able to borrow the bachmann 66 and have a play. These are paint samples so don't worry about minor specific details as there are things like steps in the wrong place etc.

Runs beautifully and looks great!

I had a play with one of these a couple of months ago and I have to say that even on 4' 6" radii the bogies didn't half stick out! However, it's a good looking beast and with Aristo's promised refinements I reckon they'll sell quite a few.
