Wow! That turbine powered machine has a lot of grunt. It sounds angry too. Impressive stuff.

When I was a kid my dad had a yard along the bottom of which runs the main north/south line up to Edinburgh but back then it also hauled a lot of coal and I well remember the whistling of the big Deltic engines as they powered up to climb the slight grade in the track at that point. Last time I heard one of those was when we were aboard HMS Quorn in Altafjord looking for lost midget subs. Fantastic engine.
