This diminutive 0-4-0 saddle tank is coal fired and incorporates most of the `technical niceties` that come with it`s larger sisters in the G3 world. These include axle pump, drain cocks, by pass valve, steam pressure gauge and water level site glass.
Keep your eye on the fire and check the water level in both the glass and the tank on every lap and it will just keep going just like electrics but more fun!
Apologies for the shake but it is not easy holding a camera in one hand and minding a live steamer with the other!

Great little ST Trevor, I like the livery.
Maybe that layabout Tac could hold the camera for you? ;)
