Hi Thomas
The newer bachmann diesel loco's have been causing a few debates recently regards running qualities but I have to say mine seem alright. The DCC equipped ones or one at the moment (class 25) has the decoder integral with the printed circuit board rather than a seperate plug-in type. Again the one i have seems OK but hasn't seen a great deal of use. I presume the new releases this year will follow the same pattern.

One of my first loco's was the class 24. A very weighty loco for its size and whilst not having a ligtning fast top end speed is good at slow speeds.

Someone on one of the other forums was moaning about the qualitycontrol(or lack) of the limited edition class 66's, said he had 3 different ones and all had one fault or another.

I honestly couldn't say if it has. The only time I took the top off was to see which was pin 1 so I could fit a decoder into one of my other class 25s that was when I found that the decoder was integral with the pcb. I know you can get drop in decoders to replace this type so maybe you could upgrade to one of those.
