Did this video help you?

ravenhawk6910: Are you running this on DCC or DCS? Ive heard of several problems related to this issue and before I buy anymore units (NS heritage fleet perferablly)

NSmodeler24: Nope mine runs super smooth at 1

Aero203: Awesome!!! I have one in the up scheme! and the horn sounds different than mine.

stephen trotter: Nice video I just got one today but I'm having trouble with the diesel engine sounds can u help me please

Ethan Lawrence: that is one BA loco!

Jared1452: MTH is really nice, but too pricy for me, I perfer Broadway limited.

csx2566: Nice review that horn is better than the sd70ace

Andrew Dial: How much was it and does it have smoke?

TrainGuy18: do they make one in CSX

stationmaster12: I like these locos, how well do they consist "DCC" wise with locos using a Digitrax decoder? Thanks!!

firefighterTGray: Do you have problems with the MTH and your digitrax system?

leejax01: NS, does your SD70M-2 have any jerk in speed step1 ? I finally opened mine and 2 of the NS SD70M-2s have a jerk that my previous ones didn't have at speed step1. MTH also confirmed this.

Trains Big and Small: very good locomotive, very good quality unlike athearn = NO Quality

elr2141979: @NSmodeler24 CN sd70M-2 has rear ditch lights

Joe Slick: Are you able to consist with the SD70s with other various locos?

NSmodeler24: thanks. They are. Its the first model (other than brass) that ive seen that has them.

hamltnblue: Hi. I just finished last night. I'll have a vid with it consisting with the CSX soon :)

guitar446: great review and i was wondering if you have had any problems with the coulpers on it if not i might get one of them

SP4449Warbaby: Anything Norfolk Southern is good, and that MTH SD70M-2 is one good engine, if I was modeling NS, I'd get me one of those.

NSmodeler24: yeah they are really nice

Brice Barrett: Looked at some of the SD70ACe units MTH sold and they dont have rear ditch lights. Is it possible only NS units are equipped with them because they are the one railroad known to run long hood forward?

NSmodeler24: I did actually with the rear couple, but it was a factory default. But ya the couplers work great!

MrLuebeck: @lennyos Only for N scale Kato SD70ACe

hamltnblue: Nice Job. I have 2, 1 in CSX and 1 in the Presidential Scheme

NSmodeler24: yep

tommie022481: The rear ditch lights rock...!

MidwestMoKCS NS: good review

Jared1452: Out of all the engine brands you have, which one does the most detail in your opinion?

Charlie Schulz: Great engine!!! 5*****

guilford681: O man I deff gotta get some of these m-2s! Great review man! Some awesome that these have the rear ditchlights.

NSmodeler24: Yes MTH sold the NS units w/ rear ditchlights and I believe NS is the only one to have those. (CN might aswell, but ime not sure)

Corey Wood: my ns 2654 had the same slow speed issue out of the box. hesitation and a rub.

graysonator123: Duuuuude I want one. Lol. I should start saving for that Intermountain GEVO. $143 at this one place w/DCC...

Zachary Saulig: yeh i found out that mth doesn't allow programing track to program the engines address

guilford681: Hey have you figured out how to program one of these suckers?.............I know a way I think but its a pain in the ass.

123chinch456: why can't they make any sd70m-2s in n scale?? that's awesome

Kevin Burkitt: I have the same one in "O." The sounds and actions are exactly the same. I only hope that detail pieces aren't as fragile.

hairoftehdog: Got a vid of that Presidential Scheme one?

CPBellevilleSub: Very nice review. I really want to get one, but I can't at the moment lol. The rear ditchlights is a very nice feature.

Dylan Harvey: That horn should be on there HO SD70ACe also On the ACe it has a K3L Not a K5LLA Like it should be i was thinking put a M-2 Sound in a ACe, Dylan.

NSmodeler24: I would probably say tower 55, altas, and athearn genesis.

Robbie Neufield: which one do i buy the athearn genesis or MTH will both ditch lights flash on the athearn or not

morepassionfoo: Damn. Wish i had one. Do they still use a nmra decoder or what?

lennyos: I think Kato makes the 70ace.
