I got a pair of KATO N Scale SD-90MACS (UP)about a year ago, and they are by far the most quiet and smooth N scale locos I have.

A few days ago I picked up a pair of Kato N Scale SD-70M's,(TFM) and they are as noisy and rough as my worst Atlas N scales.

Anybody else noticed this ?

I haven't purchased any Kato units in a while. The ones I do have run as smooth as my Atlas units, which is pretty darn smooth. Of course, I can't speak to N-scale as I am in HO scale.
