Does your railroad permit kicking cars?

Now, I wanna know:  how many takes?

Many years ago when engines had the old open frame motors, I had a Hobbytown 55 mph geared GP-7 as a "HUMP" engine.    I built the hump with several Kadee uncoupling magnets and that engine would creep very slow and every 10 seconds or so a car would uncouple and roll into a class track.  I would get a cold Coors and watch it, oh 2 or 3 cans worth.  Lots of fun.

That is exactly what I was thinking.

Three takes.  I do it often enough that I knew pretty much what to expect from the equipment,  Set up the camera, turned it on, and did three takes.
