  1. The way those locos are leaking steam around the joints when the body flexes, I’m surprised they’re still holding together. Shoddy construction on the outside doesn’t give all that much confidence the boiler is well made. On the other hand, the give is probably good, as it absorbs shock from the shoddy trackwork!

    They need you Tim!
