Earl in the cold and snow

Post by artfull dodger » Wed Dec 11, 2019 7:32 pm

We got a nice dusting of snow and some cold air this morning, so after some needed service work to correct a loose smokebox and upper lamp iron. I took a pic of her as she came up to pressure(spent most of that time in the house on the oven top raising steam). Then I took a short video of Earl hauling holiday travelers around the line. Enjoy!

Nice video Mike, gee I'm jealous of your steam plumes, something that's hard to get down here.

And I'm jealous that it's warm enough for your butane to burn, something that's hard to get up here!

I'm running mixed gas, 70/30 Coleman brand fuel. I also let Earl come up to pressure sitting on the stove inside the house. Once good and warm, the fuel tank does fine, even in much colder air temps. I ran him last winter at near 0'F!!!
