This is a must see!!! not steam but very impressive.

The model GT3 turbine-mechanical locomotive built by Tim Coles was run on the Sinsheim track installed at Ascot during the 2008 Model Engineer Exhibition. The video was taken on Saturday 20 September. The loco also ran successfully on 21 September.

This engine is based on an experimental 4-6-0 prototype built by the English Electric in 1961. It features a steam engine layout with driving wheels and connecting rods. The model follows the prototype by driving the centre wheels mechanically.
