Does anybody own this stainless steel subway train?


I like the look of it, and I've been looking out for a longer EMU to run on Layout 2.0, and this one should just fit within the length of the platform. But I'm not sure. The description doesn't mention a flywheel motor, for example, so perhaps it doesn't run particularly well. The description does mention spinning brake disks. How do those work? Are they a liability?

 

In short... any information welcome.

It's a 2017 release so I would be surprised if it didn't have a modern mechanism including flywheel.

AFAIK they will be decorative, representing the distinctive look of the prototype.

I've seen videos of it, this one is on my wish list.  It has a special truck design iirc, so the brake disks do visibly spin as the wheels rotate.  Its a neat effect.
