    Fantastic! Such a treat to watch the old puffing billys.Kudos to the dedicated engineers and mechanics at SLGR. Hope we can restore one of the Garrets in the not too distant future. Need to attract railway enthusiasts - lucrative niche market....

    Is the steam produced by burning coal? A niche market to pollute the environment further?
