Hi Herb and all, 
First train out after a cold clear night onto dewy rails with grades and tight curves is always going to be tough. The crew may not have too much time on 2' gauge Garratt's, especially under significant loadings. Some of the crews were from steam-qualified personnel from other countries. So perhaps we shouldn't be too hard on the crews??

The next one looks like it is 2019  Fancy a trip to South Africa??
