You're welcome Alexander.

(edit: I have added close-up views of the cab interior and steam engine motion to the first comment above.)

I will remember Steam Engine 'Works Number' placement for the future. ;)

Interesting to see that it is a left-hand-drive.

Being left hand drive makes it easy to keep driving near to the kerb. I think you are very unlikely to actually want to pull out to overtake slower moving traffic, because there isn't any. ;)

Well, horse-carts were slower. These hard rubber wheeled trucks had a maximum speed of around 15 mph, but the later Sentinel S4 had a top speed of 60 mph! [Image: laiesken.gif]

...and it can probably still beat a modern lorry from zero to 20mph!
