We enjoy giving a good demonstration so we arranged with the scammel to stay behind to show the crowd the power of steam!! Next time we will choose something with better turning circle!! It made it very hard work on the corners and even tried to pull me sideways!! At the very top of the ring we started to struggle until we hit the start buttons which effectively turns us into single cylinders which really put on the power and made a huge difference. I always thought that this wasnt very effective due to the HP steam going back into the crossover port and negating the HP cylinder but it was clearly not the case. And my god did it throw some stuff up the chimneys!! Great weekend and a nice season closer!!
