This is a very nice mother / slug
locomotive set. The Locomotives are smooth runners and strong
pullers, pulling 77 cars easily ! A Briggs Vanguard V twin 16 HP
engine drives an Eaton hydraulic pump in the mother unit, which
then supplies hydraulic power to the slug as well, so all 12
axles are powered. Each loco weighs about 800 pounds, so they
will pull a lot of cars.
They are controlled with MCC's wireless
remote control system, which is a really nice feature. It works
great for switching and building your train. It's also great to
not have to push on the manual stick controller or be tied to
the locos by an electric controller, and to have the flexibility
to run the locos from either end, not just one fixed position.
The locos are unique in the fact that they are 2 of only 3 locos
built by MCC with the rotating axle bearing caps on the trucks.
The locomotive also has a second auxiliary fuel tank, so you can
run all day without having to stop for fuel.
