How to make a wire coil train: a handy-man special

Electric train? Electric train?

This “how-to” video shows how one can create an electromagnetic train in a wire coil. All it takes is AAA batteries and magnets, a ground metal rod 5/8" diameter or 1/2" copper pipe, 18 or 20 gauge uncoated (bare) copper wire or plated copper wire,

a few peripheral items (pen caps) and a good imagination. The details are all presented for what could be a stellar school project or just something different. Watch the video here.
