Bachmann one is 37/6 so bound to be some differences but they are both refurbished examples I'll grant you. The biggest difference I can see is the buffers on first impressions.

The first thing I noticed was the "chunkiness" of the top-of-bonnet doors on the ViTrains version. The cab windows look a little different, too. As you say, there *should* also be some detail differences.

The most significant differences to my untutored eye is in the cab front windows and the bonnet shape when looking head-on. There also seems to be a fair bit more detail on the Bachmann model.

So no one else noticed the roof fan on the Bachmann is twice the size of the one in the ViTrain?

Yes I noticed that, but I couldn't state with any degree of certainly that there could not be such differences on different examples of the prototype - also not something noticeable from normal eye level viewing angle or indeed if the thing is revolving at speed.

I forgot to mention all-wheel drive & pick-up and no traction tyres. Really good running qualities.
