Maybe this should have been posted on the "How to keep trains from falling off the edge of the table" thread,

Wow! Did you see the way the locomotive bends and moves as it hits... I am sure that the "frame" would need a little alignment after that fall.

That must have been one helluva THUD! I'll bet you could feel the ground vibrate a half mile away.

Dropping a HO train off a 4 foot high table is like dropping a real loco 348 feet.
If my math is right. Ouch !!! You see what 20 feet does.
