Lima Model Railway Locomotive Reviews -
Class 373 (Eurostar)
Rating 5/10, (R) Runs fantastic, but room for more detailing.
Full Hornby Train Set. This is it best locomotive I have. It has a special
motor which allows it to pull a long train at high speeds. This train never
stalls. Like the class 90 loco, it can't be run at full speed without
carriages. I have yet to see a train that is faster. Detailing is good as
well as track handling.
The only problem I have had with this model is that the front of the
locomotives sticks out more than other trains when going around a bend. This
caused it to hit the station in its normal position. Because of this I had
to move the station further away from the track (problem solved). This is
due to the placement of the front wheels well back from the front of the
locomotive. This is not Hornby's fault, rather a problem with scaling a
locomotive accurately. This really is a must buy.
