That's very good Terry - one of those things where there is more work involved in it than you'd think...

Lovely job, you could watch it for hours! I particularly like the Fire less Engine, which I assume is to reduce the risk of explosion in such a high risk area.

I take it that is charged from a compressed air bottle, which is pressurised by an electric motor driven compressor?

It is charged with high pressure super heated water. This creates steam that powers the loco in the same manner as an ordinary steam loco.

They have several at Quainton Road heritage railway in Bucks.
