**Here is some video I took of the train to help you see how it looks and operates. I was running the train at about 1/3 of the full speed. The train operates and stays on the track at full speed as long as the track is completely level on the floor, or on a table.
He loves it and so do his five brothers! Yes, that's right. Six boys play with this trainset and if it can withstand that treatment, you know it is well made.
The engine ran better than any other HO engine I have owned in the past. It was smooth and never hesitated at any speed. A sticker on the box explains why the wheels may come off from time to time but I never had any come off (even after the fifth graders got their hands on it). Getting the cars placed properly on the track can be difficult if you try to do it by hand but one of the straight sections (looks like the rail is crossing a street) will actually "rerail" the cars when you move them back and forth over this section (the trucks must be oriented in the same direction of the track for this to work).
The class project was a demonstration of an automated controller running a train. I added a control panel, a small controller, some sensors and LEDs to simulate controls on a real railroad. The layout was left in the class for the kids to play with for the last four weeks. When I picked it up today, the train still worked like a champ.
