These things need plenty of oil as well as water & coal - a fine shot
Frank L Croston.: Indeed they do, Chris, lots of t.l.c. required.
A bit of tlc with the oil can.
Frank L Croston.: Lots of it required, Bill.
nice they are kept in good shape
Frank L Croston.: They are looked after well, Chantal.
If this a narrow gauge engine then it is still very big going by the size of those cylinders against the mechanic.
Frank L Croston.: Narrow gauge it is, Brian, and they are huge engines.

I think there is something in their job description about if it's a scheduled stop, fill up the tend er with water and go round oiling everything. However, if it is an unscheduled stop, first find the big hammer... Another cracking view; I can feel the heat from here.
Frank L Croston.: The steam was the hottest thing around that day, Alan...smile I think you are right about the stops. smile

You've done well to focus on the close-ups; it stops the sunlight being an issue smile smile
Frank L Croston.: Yes the heat was so great, my Nikon was covered in perspiration....smile
You might enjoy Terry Pratchett's 'Raising Steam', Frank, for a different take on the introduction of the railways smile
Frank L Croston.: I'll take a look, Tom, thanks.
