Why do clocks go tick tock instead of tock tick?

Looks nice running round your track. Approximately how far did you have the speed regulator?

I'm using 1300mAh rechargeable batteries. I measured the voltage as 10.82 volts putting a meter on the charging point.

Speed regulator setting for the video was almost flat out which is as it should be as it's a shunter after all. It runs just as well more slowly but I was having to dash out between showers to take the video and got fed up setting the train up and then the rain starting again. The loco was just as happy pulling 4 Accucraft coaches, which weigh about 1kg each.

Today I've left it running round my indoor test track for hours and its shown no sign of slowing down or the batteries to need re-charging. The meter is still reading 10.8 volts.
