    Britishsteel, you can get some good shots from the fields adjacent to Cranbrook Road crossing just outside Tenterden

    I see that OAP, he had to write what sort of traction he was working across his T-shirt so that he didn't inadverantly get on a steam loco!

    As I'm sure you well know Slash, I was the OAP. It was a bit warm on there as the engine runs very hot and both cabs have radiators heated with engine cooling water and they can't be isolated! James seemed happy to drive while being roasted so I let him.
