We had one of these on the Ruschbahn, the gearing is tiny barely suitable for a 00 Gauge Turntable. That got trashed very quickly. Then the Track Connections kept getting mashed up by general outdoor detritus as did the underneath Ball Bearing and Plastic Wire to keep the Balls apart System. In the end it became only just about usable with loads of fettling before each Operating Day. In my humble view not suitable for outside use. But probably very good inside a Shed or such like.

Yes I can imagine any equipment like this is likely to suffer outside. The one on sale from grootspoor was only used indoors according to the owner. I wonder how Gizzy Gizzy will get on with the Heyn version?

I'm planning to bring mine indoors when the weather is a little bit too inclement Dave?

And definitely during winter....
