I like you're roller stand. Did you build it ?

Yes, designed it so could test anything I own including AA units Centipede.

In the first pic the S1 is sitting on a length of RealTrax that includes an operating section.  That why can rolling stock couplers and any operating cars.  Also as pictured can set the engine(s) there and then space the rollers  and support track sections where would need them.  Then built the shorter (18-inch) test stand to make it easier to test single unit diesels and short steam engines. All in all think have 12 rollers.

For those who built stands with Micro-mark rollers on track, did you have issues with the pickup block "rocking" on the center rail due to the screw holding the pickup shoe being slightly too proud? This is the case with the set I just received (whether I mount it on O or O27 tubular, don't have nay other track to try it on).

I've got that issue on tubular. Most stuff is heavy enough it doesn't matter but I'll eventually change that screw.
