    There was only one loop then. Water stops were booked to take something ridiculous on the way up like 3 minutes. Speeds were probably around 10mph on the track back then too. Don't forget the loco will now be creating vacuum as well. So more water consumption there. The only option would be to only pull really light loads.

    Minffordd is a solution but it is very slow. I suspect you'd struggle to reach the valve in its current form too. It also doesn't fix the issue on the top section.

    It is probably better you build some water capacity into the tender somehow.
