It is ALIVE!!!!

Today the train got on the track for the first time.  It ran well.  First time around I ran it without any batteries in it.  It did OK, struggled on the hills without extra weight.  I sat on it to help on the next time around and found a dip in the track and derailed the front axle, I think my weight was too far rearward.  I put the small batteries in and had no trouble after setting Jonathan's riding car on a siding.

Five times around and the large batteries were at 27% ... that makes me a little sad, I was hoping they would be higher.  Tomorrow we will see if I have life at the end of the day.  I plan to also use the small batteries also from full to empty.
