I have watched a few, but do not "subscribe". One of the biggest criticisms is the running of trains on a carpeted floor - a little thing, but something we are all told not to do - he could easily put a sheet of hardboard down, even un-supported it would keep the track away from the carpet.
Tomorrow will be a good day!

Strange. mine has pickups on 8 of the 10, just the centre ones pickup less.

Reckon he meant 4 axles not four wheels. I rest my case your honour. :D

I believe he said 4 per rail - that would be 8 :D

I am not keen on his style, as already stated by others he takes to long to get on with it, and as for running trains on a carpet on the floor - criminal.
