The question for me is always - 'Can it climb hills?' I seem to be congenitally incapable of building a railway without 1 in 30 gradients, so I never look at Mamods usually but it seems that technologically they may have come of age.

Traffic Pattern? What pattern? Spuds out; grain in, but cattle, sheep and passengers are a lot less predictable.

Had a little look at Peterborough, it is a nice looking loco with a certain presence, but at that price point it is competing with the Roundhouse basic range.

I don't understand why anyone would pay that sort of money for a new Mamod today.

Maybe it's nostalgia for people but being of a younger generation I have no interest in what they offer.
