The training is not in technique but stamina. I have no problems in the stamina department and want to keep it that way.

My hobbies include solo yacht global circumnavigation, mountain climbing, lion taming, shark wrestling and lying about my hobbies.

The glory days of steam rail, before the diesel destroyed the romance of it.

Yes. 

But.

Lighting up and preparing (oiling round underneath) a recalcitrant 80 year old GWR steam locomotive, in the early hours of a December morning, to work that days Santa Specials, as the wind and rain sweep in over Minehead's sea front, has very little glory and <deleted> all romance!

 

I spent many (happy) years working in my spare time as an amateur railwayman on one of the UK's steam heritage railways.

 

Happy days!

True, but.

 

I'll bet not many schoolboys gather to watch the 9.10 to Wherever diesel pass by and make a note of it in their railway book.

 

They belonged in a different age, when Britain was Great and the battleship ruled the waves. I doubt we'll see such again.

Sadly we don't seem to have become more enlightened and still seek better way to kill each other while children starve.

Futaba is available in Thailand, good equipment but expensive.

I started with a Flysky FSi6X which I used for a year, 1,400 baht with a receiver. Good beginner radio but as the price suggests, cheap. Moved on to a Radiomaster TX16S, 5,300 baht from a Thai dealer on Lazada, has all the bells and whistles and uses Open TX which allows it to connect with multiple brands of reciever.
