With the test track up today working through a few repairs, I took a break to run this fabulous little thing;-

@Georgeconna I just gave it it's first run and then back into the box, I plan to make a storage/display case for it with the four coaches and when this is done the driver n fireman will be attached. The box and packaging it came in is pretty good, so good at holding the models firm that I can see it getting damaged taking it in and out - A display case I think is the best solution and then I can look at it while stored on the wall😀

Cool if they developed a DCC sound decoder for this, support it would require a exact replica to be made of the real one to record the sounds from.. Well they did make a couple of locos in the UK like Tornado so who knows what the future will bring...

There is a functioning replica of Rocket, it's at the NRM in York (along with another non-functioning one) and I've had short trip behind her at York Railfest in 2004.
