If you look closely at the Ivatt tank you'll find it has pickups on the front bogie. It must make it expencive to produce, but it also aids its excellent running chacteristics. It's consistantly been one of Bachmanns best sellers for a number of years.

Oh yes, I have nothing against the current Ivatt 2-6-2... it is still (what over 10 years after its introduction) better than many a current model from Bachmann and Hornby.

However, it does not make it easy to convert to DCC, as with any of the split chassis models. An upgrade in that department would be most welcome by a great many modellers, especially as the chassis is there in existance - the protypes shared a chassis too....
