looks attractive, has 2 rubber tyres, will increase it to 4, headlights, markerlight front & rear, interior lights front & REAR, lit destination sign front & rear., added sound decoder (V 5.0 = PLUX22) and a round speaker fits nicely into the provided space., soldered a wire to the pantograph supporting arm, drilled a small hole into the housing and conneted the wire, now its ready for catenary operation.
the model overall looks good, the details are superb

I've added the highbeam to the fron light circuit board, a bit fiddly, had to file out the window to be able to fit the led into it and the second task was to alight them to the window, I was able to scrape off the protective film of the copper wire (+) and the (-) I've added a copper wire and connected it with 2 resistors to Aux 7, first the lights were much to bright so I've reduced it to 1`.
I've only attached the high beam to the front of the loco

If the one with sound insrtalled is nearly the same price as a Marklin, if the Marklin has long distance headlights, thats a plus.

At this point, with Maerklin conceding on the Vectron, we should put pressure on them to put out more non-Hobby models of the Traxx locomotives too.

My two cents worth.
