RC Steam Video-cold weather operation?


Does anyone have pictures or videos of model steam boats running on a cool September morning- the white billowy exhaust probably looks amazing-please post cold weather ops here..

Thanks they are both fun to run but the sternwheeler puts on a big show ! Steam is a lot more interesting than an electric or combustion driven vessel to me. They are really cantankerous and needy to run, will burn you in a heartbeat but has so much more character. You really need to try it out !
