Decauville meets Jack!

Post by Chris Bird » Sun Feb 24, 2019 10:10 am

Well it was a Spring like day here in Dorset yesterday and Roy Wood brought his Decauville over to double head with my Hunslet. Despite the usual frequency of "Murphy's Law" we managed to make this little film. The Decauville is manual and barely run, while Lizzie has r/c and a Slomo.

Double heading locos can always be an 'interesting' experience!

Thanks for sharing Chris, Spring may be here at last.

That's great filming. I know from experience that double heading isn't easy. Well done.

Thanks guys - and you are certainly right - it wasn't easy on this occasion! We both aged quite a lot in the process :D

Great video. Nice variety of views of what is obviously a beaut garden railway. Double heading IS good fun isn't it?
