Depending on the loco, there often isn't room in the cab if there's RC servos in there as well. In my own case, driving manually I've got to get very over scale fingers in there, so "guilty me Lud".

Well Tom I love it with our without a driver, but I do get Peter’s point and I don’t think he was pointing any fingers, just making an observation about others.

More videos please with or without crew, preferably when it’s not has cold....Brrrrrrr :thumbright:

Cracking viewing but you call that snow...we have huge 3 inch drifts! The wind has been, and still is, a bone chiller so credit to you for getting out there.

Hopefully with winter far behind us on the RWLR we can start to resume evening and weekend running.

The new PW bogie wagon earning it's keep clearing the leaves before a run:

Where did I put that uncoupler?

I wish the leaves in my garden were so well behaved. They just won't stay still for a photo to be taken.
Or are you using some mysterious Leaf Glue ?????????....... :)

I use mind control to keep the leaves in position although I have not mastered keeping them attached to the actual tree which is my ultimate goal.

I believe summer has finally arrived in my part of the UK so here are some sunshine shots I took over the weekend:

Bit of sunshine does get the juices flowing, did some weeding yesterday and actually steamed my Willi. I even set to on a small shed this morning but didn't allow for the thickness of the wood when gluing the back. :oops: Think it is time to resuscitate Fairway :D

PS love the Cricket, mine is rather drab in comparison and the wrong scale!

I am very pleased with Cricket. It was second hand and apparently received a Royal Mail handling service although I reckon the seller sold it because it had taken a tumble.

When I got it I removed the archaic R/C system and fitted a Deltang set up with a new battery and sound. It has now become my first runner before my live steamers (and can even pull a dead steamer!).

It needs a paint job though, something like this:

By the way Tom, I do realise that the paintwork looks good on your Cricket…
