Roundhouse George in action

Post by Chris Bird » Thu Jul 23, 2020 9:46 am

Hi folks
Yesterday I visited a friend and on the spur of the moment we decided to make a video of the Roundouse George that I sold him. I had fitted a Slomo and Chuffer and he has fitted Micron R/C and a DJB whistle. George ran like a dream and we got plenty of footage within one steaming. Here is the result:

Great video Chris.

Another example of why I think SSP Slomos are a must for realistic running!

This video is making me even more eager to get a slomo on my loco. With the video embedding I found it was a space after the ‘[‘ that was messing things up if that’s any help

The link in your last post is the correct one to use Chris so I added the video tags and as you can see it now works:

For reference:

Aaaah - thanks Tom and Gareth - now I understand! The only problem is that I will have forgotten it by the time I make the next video!

Must write it down......somewhere.......
