Great Idea Gerry, very creative.
Thanks for comments, not sure about the "Abandon" bit Michael. Hopefully the "Hell" bit won't apply either.
I did say it worked and here's the proof, now have to complete basement railway before cracking the assembly of this unit onto the upper baseboard.
I plan to make it removeable to preempt any potential failure.
It will be switched and thus powered by batteries. Haven't decided yet whether to let the kiddies operate the switch.
It does run more smoothly than the video seems to show.
I claiming this animation as a first for any Model Rail layout.
