The Gradient that never was
20 November 2011
Our track day today was hosted by Mike B in an overcast but not quite rainy Inverclyde. As always when visiting Mike we spent time discussing the gradients on his line.
Despite appearances, this section of track is dead level, as proved with a spirit level more than once. Mike provided a nice long train to test the motive power on display. Ian W's scratchbuilt Bombay & Baroda No 1 breezes in with plenty of steam to spare.
Shop bought steam had its chance as well. Here Mike B's Taliesin (Roundhouse) poses for our leader, while Dave W's Darjeeling B Class, from the same stable, lurks on the off chance that a bit of banking might be required. In the far background Pat M's Regner Lumberjack is about to depart with a train of Pringles tankers.
Thank you to Margaret who provided a first class and who let us into the warm to watch Mike's Zig Zag Railway video. Triple headed steam - now there's a thought.
