Hey all, frequent "Trains" Forum poster "Zugmann" sent me this video of a restored Davenport WW1 trench locomotive.  Twelve minutes long and quite interesting!

A surprise to me as well. I knew there were some preserved trench locomotives here in the US but had NO idea any were operational.  Well, here's one that is, and it's a beauty!  Enjoy!

One more thing, that track it's running on is a hell of a lot better than what they had on the Western Front in 1918!
