    Nice trip out to Helston Railway for a small gathering, It was their Vintage Transport weekend and held a crank up for us stationary engine lot. It was spread over 2 days, only a handful stayed the 2 days, engine line up pretty much chained between Saturday and Sunday.

    I was messing about with Thomas' Norman, I think we are going to incorporate the 2nd silence in a bit more eye-pleasing fashion as it is a drastic improvement, not that the WD exhaust was particularly loud it just cuts out the bark.

    154622 - Cute wee thing, I wanted to bring that home... it used to sport a set of Blackstone flywheels.... thankfully it has the correct ones fitted now as it rocked about quite badly.
