and the stop at the end of the track can cause whiplash (need a 6 point harness! ) :lol: I LOVE IT!!! :?: I did drive it all a bit too fast - it does creep along nice and slow - put it down to being caught on camera! Perhaps I'll add the scenic "junk" items first and then I will take anot...

The Fleishmann tipping device was height adjusted (lowered by chopping a bit off) so that the edge of the skip runs up the angled bit of plastic ok and tips it. I found too that the base of it needed to be a touch flexible ra...
