Just a couple of youtube posts I found showing this superb loco at its best.

Wheel slip

The 1st section is on the Lickey Incline ;- very near to where I live but somehow I missed this :(

Many thanks Ian for posting those two video clips. (Shame about the diesel loco at the rear, but it didn't seem to be giving any assistance).
