a test train (prince) managed every piece of track, as for the tender, speed limit isnt a issue cuz i move them so slow they almost dont! hes a great runner. im really not sure, im going to have a closer look later as he gets over fine forward but not backwards. probably just something bent in its way. i ran him without a train behind and it still happens. im just working on the office at the moment and when dad gets home were finishing off the motors so ill update you all later on

Love it! Tickled especially by the Art Transporter shot with the famous paintings in-transit lol! ...but also excellent scenic work as ever mate, especially the tippler truck at the quarry head, excellent and very atmospheric. It will make a great and interesting exhibition piece. :D
