    was realy surprised at that little Bachmann 0-6-0. My grandson had to run it at full throtle because they tend to stall a lot. It held up for the grueling, almost four hours, of continuous running. Only problem was the little bobber caboose, too light and tended unhook itself with any little bounce.

    The children named it "Speedy" because it had to be run fast. They kept coming back into our module room to take a last look for "Speedy" before they left the show.

    No complaining rivet counters all day. Our club president, Dale, had more fun watching the children's reactions when he would pretent to just notice the train and ask surprisingly, "was that train wearing glasses"?

    The Valley N Trak had a modest showing with a 14 x 16 foot modular display. Just a comfortable size for the old school classrooms used for running displays.
