Building a cracker
« on: February 14, 2019, 11:56:50 PM »
Anyone from the US that has built a Cracker loco with a "Poker" burner? Where can I get the gas jets used in the US?

Try The Train Department - Jason carries most of the brands from around the world, good to deal with. It may take a couple days to hear back, its a sideline job, but he is very good. If you dont see it on his website drop him an email and see if he can get it.
