* It also shows 3 "runs" on the gravity track in Cincinnati, Ohio -- at the National Garden Railway Convention in June 2013. (You can "jump ahead" to about the 6:15 point to see these runs.)

ABOUT THE GRAVITY TRACK:
Copied from the Feb 2014 ABTO newsletter:
The Gravity Downhill Tehachapi Loop Run --- Your rolling stock car (two-axle or four-axle) will freely roll down a half pipe track and on its return, it will automatically switch off this track onto another that will bank and loop around 270 degrees under the half pipe and shoot straight out into the yard. The car that rolls the farthest distance will be declared the winner. You can modify your car in any way, no restrictions.
