I bought this engine about 5 years ago. I got home, put it on my "layout" (which was just a piece of plywood and some track), and ran it for about...
Thanks for the comments!
The rails actually were flexing that much. At the time of the vid, MOW were in the process of "overhauling" at lest 100...

Hmm, now I’m thanking...

WOW, this really makes me want to get into Z-scale!
Very funny, and very sad at the same time.
Finally had some time lately to do some railfanning. I don’t thank the pics turned out too bad, considering I’m still learning.
