    A new loco ran today at the Groudle Glen Railway, John B's 'Steamplex', a diesel to steam conversion. Delivered yesterday, in traffic today!

    Interesting little critter! Will she be used on regular services?

    Yes, on 'off peak' services probably, although she has proved to be much more powerful than had been imagined by her owner. She still has the diesel gearbox, so you can 'change down' on the 1 in 30 bank, and she really digs in. It's a bit like a one truck shay!
