Sold my last bought loco

Over the years I have sold off my 3 bought locos. This past weekend my last one went to its new home. The last run I gave it was on the rollers in August 2019 :thumbup:

Re: Live steam at a bargain price...?

I'd be happy for PayPal not to refund these greedy folks, they need to learn their lesson That rather misses the point of my post, which was that even if a "purchaser" is refunded, as far as I can see money is still given to the scammers, therefore encouraging more scams to be created. I don't know...

Re: Live steam at a bargain price...?

... the possibility that I'll have to ask PayPal for my money back is pretty high, but what's life without a little risk? Come to think of it, assuming the money is reclaimed from PayPal, does PayPal take the hit/reclaim the loss from an insurance policy? Or to put it another way, does legitimate b...

Re: Wild Rose ~ Quarry Hunslet

I'm really looking forward to another run Rod, but the weather is against me :thumbup: If it's not raining it's blowing a gale. In the meantime have I made another cover for the real steam dome. The old one leaked at the thread when using my gentle thread sealant or PTFE tape, it was visible at stea...

Re: Wild Rose ~ Quarry Hunslet

Here we are lads! Had a great run on the line yesterday. The second run around the whole loop. BBQ briquettes are up to the job. I got two laps eventually on one firing before putting the loco to bed - to run the fire right down. Interesting video, an over full boiler with water coming out of the sa...
