You lead the way with this type of modeling, should be interesting. Are you going with cyclists, or some other type of vehicles? I'll be following along to see your progress here.

Lots and lots of pieces.Cutting everything off of the spruces is tedious at best.The blue chain links are Very tedious.

Lots of different size chain pieces.they accept different size magnets. and have various size sliders.All the chain links need to be carefully sanded to make sure they will run well in the channel.

I hope the link works. There will probably be short commercial at the start. Luke is one more talented model builder and has lots of really awesome videos.

Glad to see that worked. The Magnorail system is about halfway thru.

Mike, nice video. Using the buried method you can use it on existing layouts.

Hi Pat. Should be interesting to see how you go.
I saw it displayed at a train show here in Melbourne last year.
Cars, boats, and especially the cyclists were fascinating, with the legs actually moving up and down. Very realistic.
Nice to vehicle movement other than just the trains.

Oh come on. I wanted to see you build it, where you have my interest to possibly add one to my layout. That video does make it look like a charm. I like the idea of the cyclists, and maybe a logging truck made-up from one of their vehicles as a motive power.

Yeah Patrick we want to see your build. Luke edits out the more tedious parts I'm sure to keep the video moving along so don't let that discourage you.
