    It's at Swanage, it's only running for a week then will be static for a few weeks.
    Great day out. The staff/volunteers were really good. A great atmosphere.

    I don't have a clue how the cylinders joing the wheels, may just be a cylinder each side. Sounded great, but not a V8.

    I was kidding. Steam engines have never done anything for me, I prefer 60’s era diesel-electrics but I’m certainly no train spotter.

    Excellent! I'm not massively into steam engines either, but I can appreciate them, especially one with such character like the FS. Being close to a biggun when fired up is like being near some huge living thing. I'm a petrol head like us all, but it's worth noting that when a steam engine goes from stationary to 100mph, it does it in one gear! lol
