All I can say is a 5" model of an AD60 exists and is able to be run on steam.

As to when it will run and where I do not know, except for a certain event around this time next year.
I will have more info when I see it next year.

Prefer to drive 12 inch to the foot scale live steam but 5 inch will do, do I know how to drive it, think so, have in fact driven on the Orange track before.

I drove a round there on a bloody big cane outline loco that belonged to Peter the Bricky form Bathurst.

Not as bad when I was roped into be involved on a 24 hour non stop run at Bathurst and it was the middle of winter started to ran about 3am and the cold rain hit the bolier sight class in the cab and due to the sudden cooling effect it shattered the glass. Not alot of fun.

Used to Work with Dick Adams in the old days at/of Southen Mitchell County Council.
