Friday Night Steam

 Found this delightful little video from Sweden! 

 I enjoyed watching the people's faces as much as the trains!

From the video description:

Live Steam Trains in Sweden: Borås MiniatyrÅngloksSällskap (filmed by shantos001)

24,221 views Oct 9, 2008 In September some members of the Stormpolder Live Steamers visited one of the nicest 7¼" live steam tracks on the European continent: Borås MiniatyrÅngloksSällskap. We brought two live steam locos with us: the NS (Nederlandse Spoorwegen, Dutch Railways) 4014 (a 3 cylinder engine, the original built in Sweden by NOHAB and based on the H3s type that ran at the Bergslagernas Järnväg) and a narrow gauge O&K named "Klorus" (built in 7 months). During our stay the society operated their clubloco "Bridget", a Rob Roy with separate tender, two very well build BR 70000 class (Britannia and the William Shakespeare). The live steam track is about 1200m long and is situated in a well maintained forrest. As a special they have built a fantastic scenery in scale 1:8 including houses, station buildings and water towers. Please visit for more information about this nice live steam society and wonderful track.
