So, I just got this today, was super excited but had to go to work shortly after I received it. Anyway, I look a lot of photos tonight. Here are some of them!

 

The Boxes:

Number 2 the powered car:

Close up of the pantograph, the one has spot lights on it already without the need for a lighting kit:

Number 4 has a white roof, why is this?:

Number 5 is the same as number 3:

As you can see there are numbers on top of every car:

Number 6 is the same as number 2, but non-powered. Should be noted, this one also comes with lights! I thought I would have to buy a lighting kit for it:

And finally number 7 This one has more windows in it than number 1:

And where the lighting decoder goes:

Hope you all enjoyed!

 

I will be taking a video of this, in day and night showing how it runs and with the lights!

Very nice.

 

I'm tempted to get one of these myself. I've been trying to limit my train purchases to things I'm likely to actually run, and this is a bit "off topic" for me, but the pull is strong.

Get one! It runs so smooth, I don't regret it at all!

 

I had it running alongside my E5. (I know, not realistic at all) But it looked really neat!

The reason for Car 4 has a white roof compaired to the other cars is due to Car 4 has got laser guided equipment that can be affected by the heat from the sun (giving false readings) this was mentioned in another thread. Plus if you look at the bogies (wheelsets) you will see that Car 4 is totally different to the rest cause of the forementioned item.

 

She looks good with the inspection lights are on.
