What lovely pictures!

It's good to see a new generation of enginemen starting out.  Your little boy is naturally adopting the classic poses of a driver - staring into the distance and smiling benignly down upon the crowds of enthusiasts on the platform.

That's the great thing about the footplate of a 'new' steam locomotive, one soon works out what most things do.  I have an inkling that's a LNER-style regulator just making it into the picture.  It looks good in pink.

Many thanks.

John

The Table-Top Railway is an attempt to create, in British 'N' gauge,  a 'semi-scenic' railway in the old-fashioned style, reminiscent of the layouts of the 1920s to the 1950s.

For the made-up background to the railway and list of characters, please see here: https://www.ngaugeforum.co.uk/SMFN/index.php?topic=38281.msg607991#msg607991

Before they can enter primary school, all children in Japan must, working in teams of two under adult supervision:



must prove themselves capable of pulling a 2-car 65 tonne train from a standing start and moving it by about 1.5 metres:



Later, they must stand facing away from the train and not flinch as it rolls up and stops behind them at low speed.
