    The track is probably a bit better now.

    We had to have the track tamped a couple of years back before the 9f turned up, and it's not too bad. We do have a speed restriction on the bank up from Blake Hall to North Weald, but that just means we have to open up once we get past it on the 1:63....;)

    Also 1:50 and reverse curves away from Epping Forest too.

    It's steeper than most people think..

    I just have KWVR 5820 pounding up the grade at weekends in the next valley to me. The excellent sounding chime whistle is rather a giveaway.
