For those of you who don't subscribe to the yahoo ride modelers group there is a guy with a pretty sweet write up of the new mondial piece. He has only been working on it a couple days but its starting to look great! Also there is a short video clip on the bottom of it in action! I can't wait to get my hands on a kit, anyone know if eurorail actually has it in stock ready to ship, or is it just a pre-order? There price is good enough for me. Here's the link:

Cool Vid

First thing I noticed is how the ride seems to run/rotate at a proper speed, as I have noticed some of the Faller kits ran a little fast.

I'm not sure if Eurorail has any in stock yet though, although I agree that price is about as good as you'll get.

If you're running a Faller motor directly on AC voltage it may run about 20% faster here than in Europe because US power is 60 HZ, while in the Europe it is 50Hz [lower frequency]

That's some amazing work, I can't beileve the trouble he went to, to redo all the controllers.

The diaramas look great.
