Although I've been very busy lately I did manage a brief visit to the open day at AJECTA, the mainline preservation group at Longueville. A very wet day but I took a diesel to run on a visitor layout inside the roundhouse.

Hi Carl - very good! I see you running with the side panels off, are you still getting overheating problems?

...No, not with the side panels off.
I would never run with panels on anyway.
It ran impeccably for about 35 mins on a full tank.
I have a couple of other diesels in the pipeline so to speak including a clutchless electric start model.
