Why is it that men are so fascinated by steam locomotion?
I've always been totally intrigued by steam power. I've visited lot's of the country's steam lines. I love the smell, the noise, even the inevitable smuts in the eyes and hair that a steam journey entails.
Well, now I've seen the ultimate in steam powered locos. Hornby have introduced a model electric steam train to operate indoors. It still runs on a "00" guage 12 volt line. However, the 12 volts boils a little kettle thing in the tender which makes steam which makes the engine go.
..and I want one! Drool drool..
