Gresley class N2 0-6-2t 1744 appears to have a problem at the front end as it climbs out of Grosmont with an afternoon Steam Gala train on Saturday 30th September 2012. The steam shrouding the front continued as it climbed until it was out of sight. Not in view is the Stanier black 5 banking. This assistance continued to Goathland.

Taking into consideration the incline and banker, I would suggest that the N2 is priming (Too much water on the crown) and the cylinder cocks are opened to get rid of the excess steam and water.
