Re: The M9 is a piece of crap

It's kind of apples and oranges. The main problem operator wise with the 3 is the tiny cab with nowhere to put food drink or bag. Once I got used to them I had a lot of fun. It's more hands on, and you can really beat on them without making the lousy ride quality any worse.
The 9 is like playing a cheap video game where the controller doesn't do what it's supposed to. MIN Brake and MIN Power are both gutless, whereas you could do station stops in a 7 using nothing but MIN Brake and a little adjustment at the end. The 9 also automatically takes off brake cylinder at the end of a stop, which is one of those features that must have sounded wonderful on a drawing board but sucks completely out in the field.
