Here is the track in person at the Lionel booth at the Springfield show today. I ran the car back and fourth and I didn’t see any trailing affect. The LED’s went on and off as the wheels went over them. The track kind of looks like ice covered tracks which would fit in more with a Christmas loop under the tree.
Chris, I may have missed it. Are they using an insulated outer rail or some type of sensors? Nice image. The frosted track looks like it would fit in with the white Polar track.
My guess is they are using an insulated outer rail that completes the circuit when the metal wheels pass over the tracks.
