Steamed it up again yesterday for about an hour, and ran it at various speeds. The slowest it ran was about 50rpm. Seems like with some time on it, it has run in a bit and runs a bit smoother.

That's it for this engine, other than making some kind of better base for it, so I may yet subject you all to one more post once I've done that.

Yes, Stuart - please post some pics when you have made the new base.
