The OO Live Steam Club gets youngsters to 'have-a-go' at its Roadshows partly to show sceptical grey haired onlookers that they can be realistically and accurately controlled
BUT ALL THEY WANT TO DO IS GO FASTER!!!
So the Club decided to launch the Model Mallard Speed Challenge - a 6 month competition with lots of prizes already donated by partners and well-wishers. Hornby are donating an original Live Steam promo shirt.
The campaign launches at Doncaster Railway Station on July 3 next week (all day), the 80th anniversary of Mallard's record 126mph run.
Do you think Hornby's Live Steam Mallard can do a scale 126mph?
