Pic 13:

Pic 14: the other front view:  the small but important difference are the two litlle knobs/buttons next to the lights.
One is the on/off-switch, the other is used for the frequency selection, a kind of pairing

Pic 15:  remote control in bag

Pic 16: remote control without bag.....

Unfortunately I had no batteries at home therefore the technical part will follow.

The main differences to the old RC-locos are:

now 6 batteries type AA in the loco,
a new battery compartment which also can fully removed from the loco.
No chance to charge batteries in the loco, no plug available
Loco can be switched on and off
No need to change xtals when you have moren than one loco.
2.4 GHz remote control
Lights are changing in direction.
If loco stands still, 2 red lights on both sides.
If loco is running, 3 white lights in driving direction, 2 red lights on the other side.
A sound modul is implemented, two sounds available (engine noise and horn signal) both are triggered via remote control

The three new containers have no doors to open.
The old container does not fit on the new flatcar, it´s too long....

BTW: the loco has two engines....
Unfortunately the wheels seems to be plastic , maybe it is possible to exchange the axis....

Technical review will follow.

First impression:
A nice set with room for improvement....

Great review.  Hopefully, they'll continue to develop trains using this new remote control technology - like a new steam engine or western train!

I sure hope these come to the US next year.
