I had to put it somewhere, and as it's on 'St Oval' it
seemed logical to place here.
Following my comments on the 'curse of detail' I decided to unclip the brake rodding from the front attachments
and yes, that released the Pony Truck to full movement and back to reliable running. To prove that here is the video.https://youtu.be/sTAwqL4IErg
Cruising around at a scale 14 MPH with 31 behind, no derailing, hesitations, just clean smooth running. When you
think this is such tail chaser that the train is being pulled around anything up to 1.1/2 of the 180 degree turns it's
quite impressive. When I bought 4287 I thought it rather light and wondered about it's traction, this is fine though !!
We've also had questions raised about layout heights, this has the track bed at 50" from the ground. By being that high
you have all the space underneath for bicycles, lawn mower, compressor and any other junk you want to tuck away. It'snot
comfortable to work on, but a good viewing level.
