Building a double test track and tried this little unit, some fine tuning but pleased

Thanks to all those that watched the video clip. A bit cold down in the shed at the moment but this little unit is great and will be ideal to keep the grandchildren occupied later in the year. From a practical point of view, it is handy for a quick run of my locos after cleaning while I do something else.

Can you reduce the approach speed and start speed. Some auto reverses offer this option.
It stops all the little passengers ending up at one end of the carriage on arrival and at the other end on departure! :o ;) ;)

Haha, I'm afraid not unless some electronics expert can advise. So it's an Alton Towers experience, strap in and enjoy.... :lol:

So I have fine-tuned the stop/start to be more realistic and it looks good, especially for a Thomas the Tank Engine scenario - a bit like the original TV series where you notice the odd stutter :) just need to put the music to it.
