Portsmouth Queen heads for Gosport. Superb little beastie. Not easy to steer....
This is by no means easy - Portsmouth Queen - looks a bit like tank controls....
St Faith rests at Fishbourne. I'm still in disbelief I got to steer!
MV St Faith. I think she was more nervous than me for the three seconds it took to take this.....(clearly I wasn't at the helm for 10 minutes or anything like that)
....but still smiling!
More difficult than it looks.....
Sir Walter Scott
The webmeister at the helm of the CAF simulator. Beats the h*** out of Train Simulator!
Made a right hash of that turn, didn't I? Nae steering lock at all on these. Peter Little is right - it's a Man's bus....!
Right -so what does this button do? Thanks to Peter Little for the photo

John Hylands at the wheel. Scot-rail member IIRC... I had a spin, to mutterings of "that's a new lap record". Oops! :O)
52208 at Kilmarnock Open Day. Instructor awarded me the lap record..... no idea who the driveress is!
Fiesta Zetec S which was in the fleet for a year or so. Not sure herself appreciated the Atlantean badge. Hallglen, as if it matters. Speedy piece of kit. Didn't feel the need for a reversed baseball cap, thobut.
Welsh Highland Railway. Jayne smiles. She was quite wee at the time.... I had paid for a cab pass, not realising that I would be allowed to drive! Quality!!
D7076 at Bo'ness. I am indebted to 55012 for the pic, which remains copyright to him. 5th September 1998
DMS1626 at North Weald 1986. This spin may have been the catalyst for a desire to be able to driver booses. Stewart Cameron at the wheel.
MRA13 in Alloa. She appeared at Millars Truck Centre, abandoned and blocking the road. I took it upon myself to bring her into the yard and park her up.....
MRM88 passes the Carronbridge Inn. Had a spin from Millars Truck Centre at Carronshore. Don't think anyone noticed....
801 at Bo'ness SRPS. Tick for a drive...
50015 makes a Valiant effort, but it’s no contest on the thrash front from the hot seat. D345 the clear winner!
