Details of the forthcoming Aster AD60 seem to be creeping onto the web http://www.southernsteamtrains.com/garratt-ad60-2009.htm. I understand that this is a re-issue of a previous model - has anyone ever seen one in action. It looks awesome and I'd be really interested to hear how it might perform in practice. The fact that I've never seen one makes me worry that it might be a shelf queen....

Continuing the nostagia theme - I spent much of my childhood in South Africa and attribute my current interest in live steam to that time - in the 1960s I used to go from Bloemfontain to school in Cape Town by train - pulled thought the Karoo by 15Fs before switching to diesel at Worcester.

I also remember seeing the huge Beyer-Garratts when we spent holidays in Northern Natal.
