Fox Valley Models Wheel Sets Going through Fast Tracks Crossover

This video shows just how smooth N scale trains can go through turnouts when you have high quality wheel sets and precision made Fast Tracks #10 turnouts. Two trains go though a crossover without the slightest bump, almost as if the turnouts weren't even there. The first train is a faster moving intermodal train. Not all the cars have Fox Valley Models wheel sets. The the second set (red) has Atlas medal wheel sets and the first truck bumps a bit going through. If I re-gauge the wheels in that truck, it will do better. That's now on my "to do" list. The second train is a slower moving manifest with 100% Fox Valley wheel sets. Completely smooth.
