i remember their being an article in Model railroader some time ago about the record train. aparently they started by asking evryone to bring in evry item of rolling stock they had but that was a complete disaster because no 2 of the members had stock made to the same standards. so they went into a shop and ordered a thousand boxcars. but that didnt work either because they were fitted with NMRA couplings which under tension were drooping and fouling pointwork. eventually they had to replace all the couplings with KD's and all the bogies! far more work than they had anticipated!
