K1 Garratt on the PLR

I’ve made a short video of my K1 Garratt struggling hard on the 1 in 28 ‘up the bottoms’ on the Pentewan Light Railway. As can be seen there is much scenic work to do. The K1 also needs more weight as it’s wheels are spinning as it moves out of shot – if any more wagons are added it grinds to a halt!

The video was taken on a small digital camera and all the sounds are from the loco (CT Elektronic SL51 decoder). No post production editing was applied – I wouldn’t know how to do it!
