I find the Bachmann class 108 DMU two car version an excellent model, though the setting on the power controller requires a much higher setting than any of the other Hornby and Heljan powered rolling stock run at similar speeds.
Has any other member found the 108 DMU requiring a higher setting on the power controller?

Hi

Mine is >500 miles from me at the moment so I can't test it, but (a) yes runs very nicely - in fact have the three car one sitting next to me becuase I liked the two car version so much - but track and everything else is also >500 miles away so that's no good for a test either! (
not noticed need higher controller settings © I'm using DCC - it might be relevant to say if you are or not.

Cheers

Tim

I've got the latest 2 car Blue & Grey power twin. Lovely smooth runner. Haven't noticed anything untoward in the power settings.

I have the same thing with mine. I have two Bachmann chips in it and set on 28 speed steps and it does not move until step 5. Just hums on 1 to 4.

My apologies for not including more details.
The model class 108 DMU that I have is the Green coloured two coach, with speed whiskers and runs a dc 00 gauge track, powered by a Gaugemaster 100M power controller.
The model has been run on a daily basis, since bought in the latter end of February 2008.
