Train Build Followup - Episode 198

At the end of October we had cut the train kit out and I passed it back to my Brother to paint, assemble and modify to make it run on a rail for his Christmas display.
This video shows the final result. 
The painting and assembly was easy but the real question is would it run on a track?

The plans used to make the train was purchased from www.makecnc.com


The model was scaled up to use 12mm plywood and modified to run along the track puffing steam out the chimney. A light was added to the front of the train and the final touch of a steam train sound track playing from a speaked mounted on the train. Both day and might this train looks the business.
