As Bill says - that was really a quickie  ;)

I'm very impressed with how long it misses between hits  :praise2:

Craig--That is just lovely!!! None of my three previous hit and miss engines I've built will run that slowly or with that many misses between hits. I am greatly impressed.---Brian

Thanks for all your kind comments and also for those of you who have been stopping by to follow my progress.  I've completed the build and have posted a final video here:

Well Jo, the casting cabinet is bare. :o 

I’m really out of projects unless I drag out the little Lauson I started designing; then building around last year this time.

We’re about ready to get into the cold weather for a few months, maybe unwise to start a new large project.

However, I have been looking at the “Frisco Standard”, distributed by “Shelf Pet Models” out of Oregon.  This casting set builds a beautiful two cylinder, igniter fired, open crankcase engine.  I haven’t called to check availability of the model but maybe this might be a Christmas present I’ll get for myself.

How can you live like that  :paranoia:

Imagine not already planning on your next build, or the one after that, or the tenth after  :( As someone once said to me I know I can live for at least 20 years as that is as long as it will take me to make all the engines I currently have - he used to complete a 5" loco in 18 months  ::) and he only had one set left when he passed on to the great workshop in the sky at 98 years young  ;)
