    ....If you hate roller coasters. :D


    Found a cheap wireless cam on eBay and got it in the mail a couple of days ago.
    Tied it down to one of my Lionel 8300's with electrical tape and let her roll.
    You'll note I do a couple of laps in reverse as well. Just for grins-n-giggles.

    I'm not going to constest for the quality of the vid because YouTube has been messing with me. It' looked fine before I uploaded it the first time but got all pixilated on YouTube. Did one with a little better resolution but I haven't had a chance to watch it since it uploaded. (And I'm blocked from YouTube at work. :curse:)

    I'm wearing the dark blue T-shirt and denim shirt over it.

    Cool your right is was more of a RC ride than a RR ride. I bet that scale was over 150 mph. :)

    I only had the throttle about halfway open too.
    Imagine how fast it would have been on 100%.

    Just heard that song this afternoon; everyone at worked was giving me a hard time cause it was playing lod in my truck...

    Layout looks to be coming along...
    I did find that if you let it load a good ways, then let it play it looks better.

    I'd like to see that done again when you get some trees and buildings on the layout. :D Ah the joys of 3-Rail Lionel. Really enjoyed it and song. Nice combo IMHO.

    That reminded me of riding the wild mouse at the amusement park. :) When you go around the corners on the ride the track disappears too! It felt like the same speed too.sign1

    I'm glad everybody is enjoying it. :)
    My wife thinks I'm nuts. ;)
    (Well, OK.... I admit it freely. I am a little off my rocker. But I'm having fun! :D )
