EJ&K April 2016 run aka testing the brake car.

Having rode behind both my electric and behind both steamers I can understand how the EJ&K is great track for steam.

Lilli and I took the brake car, two flats, the tugger and the SBT for a few mile of running.  Otherwise we watched or rode on the steamers.  The brake car worked great.  I had not recharged the tugger all winter and the batteries there were down to two volts.  Not sure if we can get them to recover.  I am uploading a video of the SBT to youtube.  I am thinking it sounds louder now than when it was new, more gear noise.  I will compare the videos that are up of the first few runs with this one.
