Hi Graeme. Is it ok if i pay my membership next time im up?
Same, easier doing it cash in hand rather than letting Royal Mail take care of it ;) I should be up 4/5 February anyway.

Check the meets section for the next 'RailUK' visit. It's well worth going up there. The guys make you feel at home within 5 mins - a good laugh too!

oh god knows, it was pretty ancient though, as you had to crank it up on the front (like with v. old cars) It must of been 30 - 40 years old (?) but it was surprisingly easy to drive / control, and went at a fair lickety spit (as you can see on the vid! - but the clag could be likend to that of a 37, and the noise probably an unheathy "chopper")

And Jim - I was flailing!!!!

I drive cars, vans and anything else with wheels but i couldn't keep that dumper in a straight line, but James could :shock:
Hes a true FARMER thats why.

i hate petrol driven thing because i had a nasty acceident on a miniature railway where i was top and tailing a Pway train and the coupling rod nut on the 08 thing i was driving wound lose and came off thus meaning the coupling rod fell off the whole thing tipped over and i was trapped underneath it. The firebeagde turned up so did the amblulance but it was no good as they couldnt actually get any equitment there to left it so they had to get about 6 or 7 people to left it off. it b****y hurt. and even since then i have never driven any miniature steam loco that is petrol driven. the owner of the loco (my god father) is trying to get me to drive the engine again im think about it but im not to sure. Hence the reason why i didnt want to drive the dumper at Coventry.
