But they are typically very dim at appropriate speeds. Good candidate for a decoder.

Just checked, the loco does contain the standard Marklin 10V (i.e. not an
LED) bulbs in it.
Dunno why they're not visible but then it is in the sun

- Nice video, Peter, and I was especially interested in the audio. Have
you tried that engine on a 'normal' setup? I get a lot less whine. How
high was the 'throttle?'
I've run otherwise quiet engines on the Solar and, yes, they whine.
Are those wierd Marklin electronics using a pulse? Of course, Jeremy,
we all wish it were a system Joerger.
I also second Steve's comments about the dirty rails and the poorly
positioned connector. Now, Steve, if you would publish a photo of your
adapter modification. I take it you did that rather than use a 110 ->
220 adapter on the brick that same with it?
BTW, timetable: purchased on 3/14, shipped on 3/15, arrived at my back
door in MA 3/30 (no signature.)
>Are those wierd Marklin electronics using a pulse? Of course, Jeremy,It seeme like it to me, becasue the engine get warm to the touch much quicker than it should.
>we all wish it were a system Joerger.
Like just a few minutes of operation.
