Re: Low Cost HOn3?

I would honestly stay away from the Stanton drives. One of my other interests is modeling the Northeast Corridor in modular standard gauge HO, and the stanton-powered MU cars (like Silverliners and Jersey Arrows) have demonstrated poor operation and reliability. They will run for about half an hour, and no longer; as the motors seem to lose all torque as they heat up. I have long since changed all of mine out because of it.
I do have a regauged Bachmann 70t unit that runs fairly well, but I haven't really run the drive in yet. Perhaps someone who's had one in regular service can tell us more about how reliable they are over time?
