Kevin's beautiful 7/8" scale engine underway

This engine driver looks remarkably familiar...

Let's go for a ride!

Wrekin - check out the feed pump

Ogwen - classic steamer from the 80's

Jim watches as Rob prepares his GWR tank loco

The successful lashup of four Pannier's was a great sight

Tony explaining something to Jim Overland and Jim McDavid

With apologies to Kevin, I optimized the exposure to make a portrait of Brighid - If he's even half the gearhead I think he is, I'm sure he wouldn't have wanted it otherwise...

Tom enjoying a run of his Shay

Henner towers over his latest creation

This Russell was on the swap table just prior to this run

I believe this is also Henner's excellent work

OK - so it's not steam powered - but it is pretty neat and built by a junior steamer

Weathering was never high on my list of priorities - until I saw Rob and Steve's incredible work.  They have mastered it

Jim buiding a fire in his kit-built Ivatt Atlantic - I had the pleasure of operating this engine - it definitely reinforced my love for the hobby!

Lighting the fire...

This is an impressive runner
