I had some friends from the local Model Railway Club round for a running session yesterday. I managed
to persuade one of them to drive the live steam R/C Locos so that I could take some video. Here is
the result.

All I have to do now is to work out a way of securing the logs that looks prototypical.

We had a Works Outing yesterday to sunny Doncaster for a visit to the Roundhouse factory. The Roundhouse Team
excelled themselves making everyone welcome and provided a superb Buffet. Staff were Brilliant answering questions
and showing how they manufacture the parts and assemble the engines. There was even a short length of track from a certain TV
show and the battered locos showing their battle scares.
A Great Day Out.
Regards Graham.

I haven't done the factory tour, or open day, but I did pick up my Lady Anne from the factory when it was built.

I would imagine seeing them being assembled would be very interesting.

We may have to arrange a trip sometime Ian, with possibly some other members, or anybody else who would be interested. :thumbleft:

Sounds interesting. I'd be up for a visit. I'll have to leave my wallet and credit cards at home though.

I had planned a trip there this weekend. Unfortunately a change of plans meant I did'nt make it. Thanks for sharing the video.
