As you'll note, we've added a short Bonus video to this episode, called "Sausages and Steam" - in which Jeff and I enjoy a bit of post-segment barbecued goodness and run a train. It's our tribute to the highly social nature of the "live steam in the garden" niche of this hobby.

We will include one of these after each episode of Fired Up!, featuring a different sausage/mustard combination and a different locomotive in steam.

Enjoy if you watch!
