Just watched the video - that's great! That loco is a little rocket - so much fun watching it fly round the track.

Also - I'm jealous that you have an anvil as a garden ornament. Now I want one.

Many years ago I did a bit of hobby blacksmithing. Fun, but I got tired of the coal smoke and dust. If I ever go back to it I'd switch to a propane forge! Anyway, that was my homemade anvil, cobbled up from some bits of train track and an old tie plate. Glad you liked the video!
