A G5 visits the BCR

Well Saturday was another busy day. Rocket's boiler tubes are finally cleared. A Look at the engine revealed that the injector needs a handle and the brakes on the tender need renewing. However today we had a visiting G5. Here's some photos.

A side long look at the engine show the layout of a G5.

The engine is painted in NER apple green. It actually wears this livery well despite being a tank engine.

Another look at the amazingly detailed cab.

We had koppel in steam going up and down the rack railway.
