      Gauge 1 Royal Hudson and cars....

      running on our little track last weekend.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pMIMEFOg9Vk

       

      This was the very first outing with the set of Accucraft's generic smoothsiders - in this case, in CPR maroon.  The odd car out was made by Alan Wright in Ontario, and looks, to my aging eyeballs, to be nearer the correct shade.  However, Rule 8 applies over here in yUK, the same as everywhere else.    For anybody interested, the loco ran for 39 minutes on ethanol and judicious refilling of the tender whilst in motion and the use of an axle pump.  A similar consist hauled with purple meth as fuel resulted in a duration of only 28 minutes.

       

      More this weekend, as it is our anniversary running day - 25 years!! Whoooohoo!

      Thanks, Seán - I think so too.  However, I would have liked the unstreamlined version a tad more, as I think that even in this scale, a busy-looking loco beats any streamliner.  My favourite SP Northenr is any of the war-babies, for that reason, not that 4449 is ugly, you understand...
