Hi RogerB - to enhance your education on Bulleid Pacifics - If you can Google YouTube and enter Clan Line Stampeding Horses - watch in full HD, full screen and with the volume really turned up. Enjoy.

Thank you - Bulleid Boy, my apologies to you and any other aficionados (sorry WTD) for the misspelling. Thank you also for the suggestion to watch the You tube clip - which I did, and quite a few others. Now, at risk of upsetting many other railway modellers, "them's proper trains"! So, half an hour later (and a little late for getting off for my first job for 9 months - they can wait) feeling very pleased to have watched all those locos this morning. I did notice the steam apparently coming from the rear of the tender which I guess is due to effect of slipstream. Thanks again BB. R-

It's funny you should notice the steam coming from the rear of the tender - and a lot of it to. I have noticed this many times when watching Clan Line (it went through Basingstoke last week). May be someone can explain this.

No need to say sorry to me Roger I always used to spell it wrong unless its because you used the word aficionado. Sounds like a Mexican fisherman.
