Just saw this here:

Track Inspection Car

Seems to be a good idea, but the price may discourage people from buying.....could probably make one yourself, but it does come with useful accessories.....

Neat little tool. Not something I would be interested in ordering, but it could be useful for someone else.

Uh, er, ah, duh....why not just get down close and look at the
track directly...seems to me the plexi would hinder close
inspection.

Actually, I think it's a potential answer to a question that gets asked quite often....how do I detect and fix where my cars keep getting de-railed....that is, a question that gets asked often enough, if you're listening...... ;)

Anyway, since they are making one for the market, they must think that it will be viable.....

I think that would be very useful for troublesome turnouts.

My solution, to track-work gremlins, is filming a single truck rolling along the track. All minuscule defects in the track will be visible. No longer do I have to keep rolling the truck endlessly because my eyes and mind can't agree on the exact spot the truck was attacked by the gremlins. Scrub the video in slo-mo and be amazed. Glenn
