Very nice engine, Kev. I hope to have an engine built next year... and I hope it runs as well as yours.

Kevin,
Sounds and runs great. I could hear it loosen up as it ran, great job.

That looks very nice, and sounds and runs just as one would hope, Santa's elves made a first class job of that very acceptable present!   Dave

Thanks for all the nice comments guys, looking forward now to the New Year and starting the Elmers engines #29 and #32 which I will build together as many components are the same or at least similar
