The Great Race Down to the Final 2!

I did not address it in the video, but we have run into a problem electrically with the Great Race. Gordon and Thomas will be the final 2, but in reality, Henry should have beat Thomas. After experimenting a bit after the race, I found that I had a defective outlet on my power strip. This in turn affected the transformers. So now some do not perform the same even when moved to a good outlet. In fact, at one point it would not even move a locomotive and then would shut off – like there is some kind of short. I did another test and Henry blew past Thomas, but if I switched it, I could get Thomas to beat Henry. The first several races were fine – it only start in Round 3.

I do not think I will address this on YouTube because it might bore the kids. But if anybody thinks I should please let me know. Thanks.

Flying Scotsman – Plus Hornby Models Don’t Work Well on Atlas Track

Picked up this very nice Flying Sctosman Train set on eBay. Everything looks nice and operates well with one exception – the Hornby passenger cars do not work on Atlas track at the switch machine frogs. I do not think they were designed for that. The wheel flanges are apparently deeper than on other models. It looks so nice though. I will see if a can find away to fix it without having to switch to Hornby track.
