    It was 75 inc p&p for me.

    Right. I've given it a little bit of a run today and, so that we're all using the same units, I used Cravens as the test loads. On the flat it was still quite happy with five behind it, even with the whole train on a radius 2 curve - I didn't think it was worth finding the limit, as it'll never need to do that in 'real' life. On the 1:40 slope, it started to slip when the fifth coach was added, but it would even start from stationary with four coaches, all on the slope, without slipping - we don't have any sloping curved track. But that sort of perfomance'll do for me, I think.

    I suspect there's maybe the odd bit of oil on the wheels and the track is in a fairly dusty location - even so, it's better than I expected.
    My best work has been spread over many fields..

    I popped an 8pin DCC chip into it, and it works a treat

    There should be a warning on the box.

    practice holding the loco by using a real live baby ,once you have the hang of that then try opening the box and removing the loco.
