Got my first AZL loco - first impressions
- Received my first AZL loco today, a Rio Grande SD45. What an amazing little loco,
runs and looks like a dream. My initial reaction: What the heck can I sell on eBay to
justify getting more! :-)
I've only noticed one issue: The body shell can slide along the frame, and unless the
shell is perfectly centered over the mechanism the trucks can hand up on the steps. I
will come up with some method to prevent the body shell from moving. Other than
that I am very pleased. I may also research the possibiity of moving the couplers in
slightly so they are not so prominent.
All in all it's been an amazing experience, one that I hope to repeat frequently. I
posted a few pics in the Photos section, not the best but they give you the basic idea.
