one of those virtuous circles, this Romulus came in recently so that it's owner
could buy another man's Tinkerbell - in turn that man wanted the money to
buy a new Feldbahn-FC7
(sensible chap), so everybody's happy.
We're quite taken with this engine. Nice colour - touch of the North Staffordshire's about it - and it runs well, there's a clip of it here.
