    that is very cool, but if i had one i'd build it in N-gauge, mount it on a wall, and put a frame round it. that still has all the novelty but without the sore neck. that's if it works of course.

    Not saying my neck is a bit siezed up, but I would have to lie flat on my back on the floor to be able to see it all at the same time.

    And I hate these people who think 30 is old.... Bah Humbug Grump...

    It was on the local news, each wagon etc has a magnet in the base. I guess there must be a metal plate between the tracks as well.
