Very clever bit of track laying ,probably one of Bransons drivers in the cab.
I don't think any Dapol or Bachman/Farish units could cope with that but I'm sure one of our members with Kato track will be busy over the rest of the holiday to prove me wrong.
Look forward to a video clip soon.

This is genius. The spirit of the great Colin McRae is with us.

Hah, I had a unit do something like that yesterday... came round a corner over a Kato #4 point, front bogie went across to the parallel line while the rest of the train stayed on the original line. It worked quite well until the side platforms got in the way.

Would be good for vacuuming up the leaves between the tracks.  :) Bit more bogie swing than we are used to.

And there's more...!

and a Lego one too... and as he says himself, Komata, "I have way too much time on my hands". I respectfully disagree and think this is an excellent way of spending time!

The correct term for it seems to be multi-track drifting, if you want to so some research and have a go. First NGF member to do it successfully and post here gets bonus points from me.
