Hi Steve,
the trains are designed to run with the minimum of friction, the tooth form has been designed to run straight. If the wheel is slightly out of true this will cause unwanted friction. You see clocks sometimes with some bent wheels and although they might still run they are not running as efficiently as they could. I wonder if for the sake of the video they have just grabbed and old wheel out of a spares box as you can t get close enough to see properly without getting in the way of the camera so there is more chance of the wheel jumping out. If this is not the case then it makes you wonder if these guys know what they are doing. I would be interested to see one of these videos.
Paul.
