Bachmann DCC-onboard GP-9
Here are a few pics of my latest acquisition... the Bachmann USA EMD GP9 with DCC on board.
I model both UK GWR and Canadian 1950-60s so when I saw this on the shelf for $69.00 I couldn't resist.. The CN green/black/gold livery of this period is one of my favourites. The loco runs very well, nice and slow, smooth and quite quiet for a Bachy....so I'll be doing a small blog-thing about the weathering. For a start here are some pics of it straight out of the box.
