Hi All,
35028 seems to be doing sterling work on the main line, if the several videos of the February Belmond British Pullman are anything to go by!
However, I have a question - there is steam issuing from the top of the rear of the tender, sometimes coming in "puffs".  What is it for?  This video shows it quite well from about 03:06.


Cheers,
Ged

Could it be a donkey pump?

I know at least one loco had the airbrake apparatus built into the tender because there was no room on the loco.

It is a steam operated air compressor for the air-brake equipment on the Pullman carriage stock - see here -
