    I think the new one is more of a canter than a trot.

    Thanks for your support! I did build a 'flying Snoopy' for it at some point. I guess I should try and rebuild that...

    I use a sheet of letter paper (8.5 x 11) cut in half, but half a sheet of A4 paper would also work.

    Cool, glad you got it to work. It could have been something in the support structure not sitting quite right. If anything is even slightly out of line, it can cause a lot of friction in a drive system.

    It could be due to too much friction in the system. One mistake that people sometimes make is to tightly push the gears onto the axles, so that there is a friction between the gear and the brick beside it. It's helpful when building any Technic model to make sure every axle can spin freely as you assemble it.
    In this model, it also helps if the orientation of each pair of reindeer is staggered. If they are all in sync, or too many of them are in sync, the mechanism has to work harder to push them all up at the same time.
