Daren Davies at the controls of his dad's 5" goods loco. The loco is displaying its high tractive effort with the size of the load it's pulling. This loco has added heavy lead weights and small wheels for its gauge - for this reason it can pull heavy loads at exceptionally high speeds for its little wheels! Daren is also a fireman at the Mid Hants railway, with his father, Neil as his driver on their footplate crew.
