As most will know, I have been terrorising, these pages for quite a while, now and as such, was well aware of the ' Fruity ' as it's called and it's approximate running times, but what I wasn't aware of, is the shier volume, that it is and was carrying.
Since the conversion started, a while back, clips started to appear on YouTube, of the fruity running on broad gauge and since the standard gauge has cranked up, numerous clips of the fruity, on there as well and now I have been giving YouTube an even big belting and been following a lot more of what has been happening, out on the rails.
The length of trains has also been a bit of a surprise, but to me, that is just more reinforcement of the work, being done.
Here is another clip, by Graeme, from the other day, thanks Graeme and look at her blowing the coal out, up the bank.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zeT-WFtMQkU
You can view a short and sweet version, by Graeme and there is quite often a similar Big Daddy version, sometimes 15 mins plus, by Greensleeves.
