Hi Andrew,

Forget those and get an Aster Schools you should be able to find a used one on Ebay or through a friend there was even a cheap unsteamed one on this classfieds section.

The Sterling Single has a very small boiler so runs are short the aster will run for about 20 minutes under it's own steam an axle pump and extras can be added later.

Andrew,
I really like the Pannier Tank. They are a nice easy steamer, and they are small enough to easily tote. Since they typically worked on small branch lines, only a few wagons are needed to create a very nice visual effect. They do not have onboard pumps, but there is an ENOTS fitting allowing the engine to remain in steam all day. Oh, and they have great stack talk.

Ahh, very true my friend ran the Aster Pannier Tank in the London Transport Red colour this weekend at a large event in the UK and it was a crowd puller :D The UK Aster site has one for sale unfortunatly the $ to £ rate is on our side :D:Dhttp://www.asterhobbies.co.uk/pages/pre_enjoyed.htm
