Walthers HO scale Plymouth ML-8 with ESU LokPilot DCC
It wasn’t long ago that we reviewed the Plymouth ML-8 locomotive from WalthersMainline (June 2017). But Walthers has reissued the switcher equipped with an ESU LokPilot Digital Command Control (DCC) decoder, so we put this version through its paces.

The model. Walthers’ model uses the same tooling as the version we reviewed last year, which matched prototype photos and builder’s drawings. The die-cast metal hood, which adds to the weight of the diminutive model, is well done, especially the raised “Plymouth” lettering on top of the radiator grill.

Our model was decorated for Burlington Northern, but those wanting a more generic model to work an industry on their layout have a rainbow of painted but unlettered options to choose from. The package includes decals with more than a dozen industry heralds, both prototypical and freelanced. Many match Walthers HO scale industry kits.
