Great video Nick, you had a good vantage point,  I especially liked watching the "Dozers" maneuver through the turn.

An older friend of mine tells me all the time how many steam engines he used to scrap  :'(

We watched a few of them load up on trailers at the end of today, would have made some good video footage, but I'm sure it was bad enough for them having an audience (a few of them telling them how they should be doing it), so I kept the camera off them.
