I just love the Shropshire Star's remark "The model of Richard Trevithick’s Catch Me Who Can. . . ". They obviously forgot to mention the scale being 304.8mm/ft! Rolling Eyes

Per the charity's website, Catch Me Who Can should be going indoors soon, for some work on it in the dry during the winter. The charity is not expecting to steam the engine again until March 2011, by which time it "should look rather different".

Ah, I have nothing against adding to an old thread providing it's an interesting development - the other thread's latest addition seemed to... somewhat echo what had been said before Wink
