The Garratt was an awesome loco.

There is also a triple-headed coal train with a banker in this video. ... tives.html

Great stuff Ian! Thank you. The only place I know where you can still see Garratts in action here, is on the Welsh Highland Railway. (Oil fired Locomotives, if I remember correctly).
