    Yes. I had it out on a loop of Unitrack last night. The coaches are on the heavy side and I will need to tweak a couple of reverse curves to get them to track well - not quite ready for a video. Will definitely need some heavy horsepower to move a a full consist. The lighting works well and shows off the full interior detailing. The coupler at the rear of the observation car droops just enough that the wire is catching the inside of the rails. The easiest fix may be just to cut back the wire but I will wait to do surgery. Overall a solid 10/10 - especially given how long we have had to wait for this huge gap to be filled. Thank you Rapido!
