Any comments out there on the new TM? Noticed dynamics on the CNJ units, which they did not have. Also, do all of the models have steam generators? Also, is it just me, or are those Critters out of scale?

Saw a demo of the new Trainmaster... looks great, nice details... but I've yet to hear a convincing diesel sound system that doesnt sound tinny and artifical.
