The session will also show up any issues with the locos themselves. Luckily they all seem to be behaving themselves, at least when inverted !
The only problem is one that is unique to the Hospital stick, slow running. On a layout the locos fitted with 108:1 gearboxes are wonderful. They drift around the track and take ages to go from one end of our short boards to the other. When cleaning though, what you want is whirling wheels and yet even on full power they rotate sedately and thus take 3 times as long to clean !
Every silver lining has a cloud, as they say...
