    Looking from above at the handle for this type, to get from mid-gear to full forward which way is it turned?

    They're Gresley locos so you wind the reverser the 'wrong' way. i.e. to put it into forward, you wind it anti-clockwise. Same with the K4 & N2

    An unfortunate advert placement for me there, I'm not sure which handle I'd use first!
