A page from the Mike Brock Manual of Prototype Fidelity:

"The ability of model railroaders to distinguish perfect models from
foobie models is inversely proportional to the speed of the train that
is passing right in front of them".

So when Richard Hendrickson, et al, come to visit, just lay on the throttle!

And another nibble for food for thought. You may know the shortcomings of each car
you own but probably 99.99% of those viewing your fleet would not be able to pick out
even one of those shortcomings. And I would say that would include the model railroaders.
