A final session with my engine, which is now sold.  It's new owner, a friend of mine, wanted a spoked flywheel and some of the brass  bits blacking to make it look a bit more like his full size one.  We may yet remove the motion covers. We have no plans for steaming this side of next season,     Terry

I guess that this is with very mixed emotions that you depart with your model .... but at least you're going to see it from time to time in the future ....

 :-\ You know it is going to a new home but it is always difficult to part with a model.

So Terry what are you going to do with all the extra space  :)

Per,     mixed emotions yes, but I am probably going  to be maintaining it :) and it has enabled a much needed vehicle upgrade.

Jo,      As above so not really parting.  The space at home as already been converted to Bonny's stock storage. The engine lived in a shed on my daughters farm under a tarp to keep it free of swallow poo!  I love to see them every year but boy do they make a mess.  Engine's new home is inside a nice insulated building :ThumbsUp:
