Oops, sorry Mitch, I thought they were both yours. :roll: Never mind your "Robin" does look good.

The video showed her doing well pulling that coach and the wagons. Little hesitate at first wasn't she. Still she did get a good head of steam up later and ran well I thought. Hope we can see more videos of her, perhaps on your line hey... :thumbright: :thumbright:

Thanks Mitch,

I really enjoyed that - your loco looks great, and I loved the variety of trains on show too, literally all shapes and sizes!

All the best,

Andrew.

Those top two Loco Shed pics. look good Mitch, good to see some stationary steam engines and a roller too. The loco Shed, coal stage and the platform all have a VR look to them.The Climax earning its keep too, well done.
