Facebook tells me that a year ago, I was on the Isle of Man looking at steam trains. That seems a good enough reason to post this picture from the visit of the fabulous SteamPlex to be found on the Groudle Glen Railway.

Part Simplex (the chassis), part steam lunch (the steamy bits), this loco runs a bit like some sort of mad professor designed machine with lots of fuss and spitting and smoke. It's brilliant.

If you wonder what it sounds like, enjoy the video below:

It sounds like a steam powered jackhammer or road tamper, brilliant :D
