Thank you, lads.

A rolling road will be needed for the next round of testing. It was very pleasing, I had all the materials in stock. This spacing suits nearly all of my locos except the first one, and it fouls the meths tank a bit. I'm thinking of adding an extra set of holes for closer spacing for that loco.

Had a very nice test of Loco #1 on the rolling road today. It's been a while since this loco last ran

Best wishes,
Dave

Love it Dave.

Could your whistle valve be connected to a servo?

It looks to me that the couplings rods are in sync with the cylinders sugesting you have not geared down from the oscilator. I have a binnie motor intended for a tram which came with a step down gear which was recommended for slow running. Yours seem to run nice an slow.

It sure could Tom, check out this whistle automation on Loco #1
