Hi Dave,

Thank You for that information. I'm not in the market for an HGLW loco at present (having too much fun with Live Steam just now, but I did pick up some of his excellent rolling stock kits) but I can now see the advantage of using CR2's both for the space needed plus the increase in voltage over 2 x AA/AAA's. Details archived for future reference.

Hi Mike,

Yes the Accucraft valve gear is more conducive to using control only on the reverser. My Ragleth generally runs well on single channel R/C, albeit slightly surging initially till everything warms up. Just waiting for David Hippey to receive his order from The Train Department which includes 2 upgrade Accucraft steam valves for my fleet. I had the opportunity to run a Roundhouse Tom Rolt on our Industrial Railway Group's 45mm layout, and did try to run it just using the reverser to vary the speed for a set position of the regulator, but the valve gear they use is not conducive to that style of control.

Does this embed code work here?

<object width="640" height="480"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/SmiMQWbqIFY?ve ... ram><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/SmiMQWbqIFY?ve ... n_US&rel=0" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="640" height="480" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true"></embed></object>

Yes it does, and it works in IE9 as well.

Looks like I've found a better work round for the lack of the old embed code on YouTube - Eureka!

Not on android, so a link would still be useful so the clip can be viewed in the youtube player.
