To bring things up to date I finally got the locomotive running on a loop of track in the garden. Initially there were issues with steam leaks which were resolved by lapping the steam valve faces and fitting a stronger spring. Next task is to sort out a lubricator and improve the speed control with either a steam valve or exhaust throttle.

Good to see it running, and looking forward to seeing it at the head of a train. Love the 7/8ths extensions so far.
