Hod Carrier posted a topic in LEGO Train TechOne of the questions that pops up here on a fairly regular basis concerns the maximum distance between axles without binding or derailment becoming an issue. On a couple of occasions I have mentioned the Castering Effect and it's possible application to the LEGO railway world. Having raised the possibility I thought I should find out for myself what use it might be and to see whether I could harness this effect and see what it might be made to do. And so I set about building myself some prototype vehicles and a test track and got to work. This is the test vehicle I designed. It's a bit of a "parts bin special" but it does the trick. In the light of the lessons learned the test vehicle design was changed slightly and then retested. There is still much more work to be done with more prototypes and testing, but I'm hoping to come out with some sort of working MOC at the end of this process. I appreciate that there is rarely anything new under the sun and that I'm probably just replicating someone else's work. Comments welcomed as always. **EDIT** By the way, those black boxes are video links.
