It's been a while. As I often say.

After some 60hrs running. I'm calling this job, finished. Finally!













And.... The final video. Filmed, while setting up my table at Papplewick, last Saturday......

8) Two years worth of fun out of one engine. Did you ever find any drawings for it?

And of course  :embarassed: What's next David?

That's a lovely model, I'm envious!!

I am continually impressed by the attention to detail which many of you guys display in your models, superb.

My models usually run well but don't look anywhere near as good as this one.

I must try harder

No drawings, Jo. Original, or mine.  :ShakeHead:

Roger, Gas-mantle.
 Thanks for your replies.

The noises? ... I show, in a Victorian pumping station, boilerhouse.
 This was the third video, of the day. The first two were deafened by enthusiastic coal shoveling.

At the end of the day, me and my engines, are covered by fine coal dust.....
