Roundhouse Millie chuff pipe

Post by chris w » Wed Sep 12, 2018 3:04 am

Just had my Summerland's chuff pipe SCRH1 delivered today and noticed my loco a roundhouse Millie that I bought a few weeks ago doesn't have twin chimney pipes, but a single chuff pipe fitted.
Does anyone know the right number chuff pipe that i need please.

If you recently bought the loco brand new, it looks like Roundhouse have fitted it with one of their exhaust enhancers.....

Have you steamed it yet? You may find the exhaust sound is loud enough that you don't need to replace it with a Chuffer.

Graeme

Hi no not steamed it yet, but have got the rolling road and I have fitted a pressure gauge.
will give it a steam and see if it produces a half decent chuff.

I didn't look at the photo properly.

Graeme is right, your loco has a Roundhouse exhaust enhancer so I would not bother with the chuffer unless you want the benefit of the Summerlands FX Control.

Older Millie locos have twin exhausts so the chuffer you have is correct.

I really like the colour, is that Victorian Maroon?

My Millie has the RH enhancer fitted - makes a great sound, especially when working hard with a load or working up hill!
Where did I put that uncoupler?

Tested the loco today and all's well.
pressure gauge works fine
and a good chuff from loco, mine reaches 38psi then the safety valves starts to slightly smoke.

That's fine Chris, the safety valve for Roundhouse locos blow off fully at 40 PSI.
