Ragleth runs


After the embarassment of leaving the blowdown valve bung at home, I thought Ragleth stll deserved to streatch its legs on the club track, so I dropped in there just before dusk last Thursday for a bit of a chuff. 

The good news is that the loco runs perfectly. If there is a problem, it's that she's too fast. I never went much above half regulator all evening for fear of launching the model off the baseboards. 

She chuffs well, and the cooler evening (and chuff pipe) resulted in some lovely steam coming out of the top. 

So, I need to assess my wooden wagon kit collection. We need half a dozen behind her to slow things down, and to look as nice as the Peckett with her three coaches. Good job there is a show coming up!
