Gotta admit I didn't think they would so I was very pleasantly surprised when they did.
What made me laugh was when one of them said something about doing everything you can to prepare.. they didn't do anything! They didn't test the brakes before hooking them up to the train, they didn't check the bearings, didn't oil anything.... they didn't prepare those trains at all. They simply dragged them out of the shed and thought they'd be ready to go!
Still we have two more steamers back in the UK!

They must have greased a few bearings before setting off otherwise there could have been seizures especially when the driver exceeded their speed limit.

They did actually mention something about oiling them later on in the program but they certainly hadn't tested the brakes before hooking them up to the rest of the train.

That was pretty good but then I do like the Monster Moves series.
