Easter Morning steam up of my LGB/Aster Frank S

Nice sunny morning before the snow storm moves in this afternoon. So the lines new Frank S is out with the special after some mods to the exhaust set up The gunk tank was removed, the exhaust extended up near the top of the chimney with a home brew chuff pipe. Railway has settled a bit over the winter creating a bit of a grade just before the depot. Have to shim up that side once the ground firms up a bit. Anyways, Happy Easter!

actually no danger of derailment with the LGB style flanges on Frank S. Once I relevel the table, I can run much slower. Kept stalling at the right front corner near where I was filming at. That is the crest of the little grade the line has from the winter settling of the table. I need to raise it up a bit and put a paver block under the leg on the far side right corner. The new larger loop that will be added this spring will also help, but will still be R1 curves.
