I recently fired the new SNCF 232.U.1 for her very first run.
Yes, there’s something about it that just oozes style, refinement and power.Congratulations! The 232U1 captures the essence of the power and beauty of the great age of steam better than any other. Just be careful when you let it out in the wild .....
Hi Russell,Oooh ... lovely loco Clayton, like your loco colour I am green with envy at your latest acquisition, too bad I'm thousands of kilometres away on the east coast of Australia and you are on the west coast as my French trains would be great to combine with your French trains for a great steam up. One day maybe when covid travel restrictions ease.
Great loco and can't wait to see what you think when you pull a load with it.
Jeez mate,Very nice indeed. But I must say, when that whistle first sounded @ the 1:29 minute mark, I had a flashback to my Navy days... Thought someone was blowing a boatswain's pipe!!! Actually scared me!
