Dapol A3 on test (video)

Thought I would post a short (36 second) video of my Dapol A3 running past with 24 coaches in tow.  The point on the layout where the camera is has the train heading down a slight incline - the up being at the opposite end of the layout on a curve in a tunnel.  Quite impressed with the haulage of the loco and, for a Dapol steam engine, the control over the speed of it.  It looks quite fast in the video but it wasn't really going that fast to the naked eye and was over half way round the dial on the controller.
