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.

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.

I looked in to a review he did recently for a Bachmann 9F.

Wow, moan about it, a 40 minute video of constant grumbling about the loco, I did actually fall asleep at my laptop briefly as it was that bad only to wake up 30 mins into the video and he was still grumbling. That is where I put my comments in and closed the page.

I suggested if he makes another video to moan about a loco be sure to do it less than 40 minutes because......he.......just......kept.....repeating.......himself.......sorry.......it.......appears......I......am........talking.......like.......him......now!

And for his comments about naming and shaming what people say about him on social media just proves what an idiot he is if there is so much to say about him.

Bring it on Sam dtb here!

I have 2 Bachmann 9F's and never had any issues, he gets a bad one and does a ridiculous long video complaining about it, us sensible people just send it back!

You could put it on a flat wagon and run it to loco shed for a service
