Interesting film.

I like your camouflage; very true to prototype.

Thanks Mike.
Heath, I saw two other artillery pieces firing but missed that one.

I was wondering if the wheel was used as a brake wheel?

Thanks Larry and Philip.

Frank,
I was looking for this picture but needed to wait until I was at home. It outlines the controls for these little 20 HP Petrol locomotives.

So it was the brake the Lance Corporal was fiddling with. It puzzled me why he'd turn it a bit, then turn it back. Maybe a trick to keep the loco from picking points or square rail joints. Apropos of that, I noticed the Sapper pushing the point of a switch they were dismantling back into position just before the loco passed through without stopping. Oh, would there be shouting if something like that took place at my 1:1 trackwork volunteer job.

The more I dig the more I realize this was a well documented operation. If only color film was readily available.
