I had to laugh at 13:24...
...the bucket loader taking a tumble, and The Hand of God replacing it on the dirt mound? Yes, definitely worth a giggle.

I also have a pet peeve with those who run their locos at multiple factors above scale speed. I do understand that some designs are harder to control than others, and new locos with smaller cylinders (such as my Accucraft "Wren") take some time to break in and become more manageable. Older oscillators (the locos, not their owners) get a pass.

My humble two cents' worth.

Hi TonyW;

In reference to your comment about excessive speed, I just had to mention that the hobby shop where I work part-time got the 2020 Lionel catalog this week. One of the new sets is a Star Trek themed train. SOOOOOooooooo, I suppose that train, although a sparkie, would be allowed to run at warp speed. (Probably should not run that train in an excessively dry room. Don't want to get static Klingons!) I try to run my little steamers at a more sedate pace (mainly because I'm 74 years old now and want to be able to catch them when they "misbehave"). Besides, my railroad is supposed to be set in Middle Earth, and I have no doubt that hobbits, men, and dwarves would all consider 35 mph both outlandish and breakneck speed!

Keep on Trackin', David Meashey
