Thread: Live Steam Train from China

  1. #11
    'We' had a couple of the electrically-powered Hornby OO live steam ones. They were much harder to control than electric-motored versions, obviously, but the one that was second-hand was much easier than the new one - possibly as a result of 'running-in'.

    The smell was very evocative.
    My best work has been spread over many fields..

    Was on a the Sauschwaenzlebahn in Germany a few years ago during a blistering summer. Quite enjoyed the smell and the panic to close the windows every time the train approached a tunnel

    They go for big money on EBay these days. Don't think many were produced.
