Is it possible for someone to take a new picture or even maybe a video and post it? It would help me better visualize this.

Not sure what u mean by the term "tests" but its always good to try and use a new model before installing it on a model train layout in order to make sure it works. Its also a good idea to have a way of safely removing it so that the device can be repaired/replaced without too much damage done to the layout itself.

perhaps these online articles may help explain things:

I also have some new photos of the setup that MTV and I have nearby, but I'm not entirely sure how to upload them to here at the moment. Once I learn the upload controls I will get these posted on here.

grades are what the railroads call hills, as the gradients are what they have to try and get over
