First Class! - as always TMTV, well done.

Tempting me to. visit Portland for the August NMRA Convention. Would love to tour this layout.

In the item on the Portland club it was mentioned that cars must roll on one gradient but stand still on a lesser one.

Is it common for braking friction (e.g. axle wipers) to be fitted to prevent rolling?
