A lot of people are curious about the Faller car system and I was too. Because of this, I decided to buy a Faller starter kit and see what all the fuss was about.
I have been thinking as I planned the unfinished side of my Farland layout, it would be grand to have some other movement besides the trains. A Faller road as it turns out is fairly easy to design and to test your road design they suggest you use adhesive tape to hold the wire down as a test of your road design.
In this video, I open the starter kit and show it’s contents, then I demonstrate a truck running on my layout. It took about 2 and a half days to lay the road and get ready for the first test. I was so shocked when I finally tested it that it ran around the wire I had taped down and ran very well. I was not sure if it would leave the wire and go wild across the layout, but it didn’t.
I have had a lot of interest in in the Faller road system and thought perhaps your readers would too.

A huge thanks to Hall of Fame member, Rob. There is always a flurry of comments when I post a video with moving cars and trucks, so now you know: a Faller road.
That’s all for today folks, but please don’t forget the Beginner’s Guide is here if you want to roll your sleaves up and get going on your layout.
And please do keep ’em coming!
