Wow, really does really give a steady cam look, I've used the "fix shaky image" button on there but its always de-res'd it so far that I may as well have been using a super 8 cine camera  Rolling Eyes  maybe they have made it better since I last tried it  Question

Sounds excellent Brian.

The YouTube stab asp does distort the image often.

Did it again yesterday, the loud exhaust beat from a steep climb. Nick (SONIC45) came to visit with his family while in Lancashire and I lit Blackbeard and took him up the birthday bash climb in big wheel which a) surprised him and b) made him smile especially when he saw the yellow fire bars at the top. He then drove Blackbeard back to our house down the other hill and along the main road, the first time he has driven one of these engines.

We think it could be a good idea to have an annual hill climb for miniature engines on this hill for a bit of fun, what does everyone you think?

The Annual STW Hill Climb Challenge….

I must thank you once again Brian….
As a fellow builder I respect the work Steve/Dean and team STW have done to produce a show stopper.
However getting on one, in steam and doing a 1:6 hill is the best way of putting a smile on anyones face..

What Brian didn't point out till I was already heading back down the hill was the busy main road T junction I would face at the end.  Laughing 

My only brain-fart was trying to get my head around the regulator having only driven full size fowlers.
The regulator is reversed.  Shocked 

BlackBeard simmering at 20psi


Red hot fire bars… a good indication you have just barked your way up a steep hill... Cool
