I see you have some "Bassett-Lowke Vertical Hand Pump for Locomotive"

How do these work?  Do you twiddle the knob on the top?  usually pumps have a handle pushed back and forth but these look different.

I still have several of these Mike - they are new/old B/L stock (I sold a few at an AGM some years back) and you pump them up and down (like a small bicycle pump) - good for non-tender engines - side tanks etc...
