    My video from Friday, Saturday & Sunday. Ollie certainly put on a good show. What would have been nice though is if they stuck a headboard and reporting code on the front of her ;)

    It would also be nice to see the injectors managed properly as I presume that what you can see in every clip is wasted feed steam under the cab. Isn't a proper 'pick up' meant to balance steam and water, wasting neither?

    It looks like the exhaust steam injector on the right hand side might have been misbehaving for both firemen ? Nevertheless it was a good performance by the Brit all day.

    I notice that the timings on the day were revised between Plymouth and Par.
    I'm sure that a few chasers would have been caught out. <BJ>
