    Real sense of power.

    Awesome. (I'd take a little off the top.)

    Noted Gary. I was going to go 16/9 but decided against. I'll have a go now and re post.

    Did the fireman of the leading Black Five put a bit of fresh coal on the fire just for you?

    I was surprised at the amount considering it's a slight downhill at that point. He was cracking on a bit though.

    I was most impressed last year when Oliver Cromwell came through Totnes having descended the west side of Dainton Bank. I was close to the track and it must have been doing 60mph plus as he hit the bottom of Rattery Bank, a 7 mile 1 in 51 climb, fantastic sight. I didn't pan with it and you can guess the result of that :redface:
