That's mighty impressive, Michael!   Those bulbs really do put a load on that engine, don't they?!  :ThumbsUp: :popcorn: :popcorn:

Interesting!   It does give the engine a great chuff sound when its under load.

That's a fascinating video, Michael. Gives some idea of why dynamic braking works so well!

The weather was very nice today. 24 degrees Celsius or about 74 F.
It was perfect for a first test with steam.
Everything went well, there were still a few leaks here and there, but we had fun.

What a wonderful steam-up!   I love your whistle, and the whistle operator was the star of the show!  Must have been a fun day!  :ThumbsUp: :popcorn:

Thanks for sharing it with us.

Thank you Chris, Dave and Kim

At first Lucy didn't want to blow the whistle but then she had fun with it.
