I have 6 of the new 66's in various liveries. 1 of the 45's, and 2 of the 57's

They are quiet powerful locos but..

One keeps throwing drive shafts
one has pick-up problems
one doesn't seem to like staying on the track
and the 57's are top heavy and tend to topple when de-railed

I use bachmanns re-badged lenz chips in all of them, partly due to price but mostly as i figure they are the chips bachmann would have been using when they developed the locos so they should work well together.

I'm impressed but i think the Hornby efforts are better.
