    Lovely video, thanks.
    I was hoping for DPUs. No way that li'l ole Geep could handle that many cars without pulling Amps way in excess of what the motors could handle, let alone the genny and cables. I was envisioning pools of molten copper along the tracks. :eek:

    Haha, I was in the same spot. As it came across the trestle and the train just kept going and going I thought that's way too much train for that little guy!

    Nice vid - I love trains in the snow! -Mike

    Two standby/helper units as added tonnage. Or were they active?
