I think the bobber was to light, and it gave the most trouble, but other stock would derail from time to time in the same area, tried ensuring the points were level and aligned, but eventually I decided that replace and have done with it.

a little weight can help, bobbers are indeed notoriously light, and often a problem will be pointed out by the last car in a train.

When I started, I did not understand trackwork, switches, flangeways, etc. So I was running a 13 car train and the caboose kept derailing... well, it MUST have been the caboose, took it off, and now the last car derailed... hmm, now THAT car is bad, take if off...

When the train got down to 3 cars, I realized the problem was trackwork, not the cars... good lesson for me.

Hm 3 times, that much wine and you are in danger of a sore head next day Jimmy! Not sure how this multiple posting occurs, I have had it happen to me on occasions. You can delete a post but that has not always worked properly as the 3 posts on occasion have thought they were 1. Computers are indeed witchcraft!

Time on Tumble Down yesterday, my very old clamshell Stainz connected (electrically) to my sound tender pulling my track cleaning coach.

Looking forward to receiving my battery conversion to see what is like :):):)
