What's wrong with it?

Edit. "The manufacturer has found that a sub-standard component used during production of motorised models has been discovered to fail when using a 15VAC power supply. "

15VAC is sometimes much more than 15 V - its usually unstabilised. Guess they have had lots of calls when they failed.

Think he's referring to one of the judges on The Great Model Railway Challenge who was always very ctritical of special effects.

Yes Jenny Kirk (I had to check) does all the box openings reviews on youtube, she tied up the water tower review with Rails of Sheffield which also included one of their own Terriers which apparently is to be a further box opening ceremony.

The water tower reminds me of the Dapol Sound Shed, I did buy a couple a few years back and was not impressed, both were cast aside very soon and eventually flogged on fleabay.

She doesnt just do box opening vids. I've come across some on her youtube channel several times whilst browsing model railway vids for ideas. Some are interesting, some not so, but I have seen some really dire videos on that platform from folk who though for best intentions, really should have left their phones or cameras switched off! (Some people probably think that about mine LOL :( )

I’d rather read about how good or bad something is.
