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 safety and funnel after one lap. And some slow shunting showing where I had previously had a derailment

Best wishes,
Dave

Love it Dave. You have done a really brilliant bit of engineering. To have a loco that powerful and completely scratch built is a truly fantastic achievement. WELL DONE.. :thumbright: :thumbright:

Thank you Rod! :thumbup:

This fuel is lovely and clean burning, no need for tube sweeping, just a puff of air will do

Superb Dave, now that's what I call clean.. :thumbright: :thumbright:

Better than having to get the cleaning gear out and spending far more precious time not being able to be doing other far more enjoyable things.

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 steam raising, heaven knows how much it leaked when the boiler was up to pressure. This cover needs to be removable to be able to remove the regulator. I had previously used a medium strength thread sealant but on this diameter (21mm) it was very hard to remove the cover when needed. The other day I made another screwed cover with a flange, hopefully this will fix it
