I went today Tim and spent more than I intended to - so it must have been good!

Also spotted a new (to me) G3 live steamer - a Class 4MT - from a German company that was showing mostly G1 stuff - all very impressive - although a bit on the "small" side!  :-)  I suspect this engine may have already been seen by others here (but from another source) but it's the first time I've seen one. A very nice engine it looks too - definitely glass 'Half-Full' for G3 in this case!!!

Spoke to the Dealer who said it should be available in the UK next Spring. I suspect there will be photos and more info in the G3S Newsletter before too long - so one to watch out for.

Regards,

IanT

Was that a tender or tank variety ?

Morning John, it's the tank.

Coal fired although gas/ceramic burner may be an option.
