Hi

I tried several of my previous videos that had posted ok but got the same result. ??????

After a fair bit of messing about I had the video running on YouTube and then right clicked on the video. From the drop down box I selected     copy video URL      and posted that.

It seems to work

Cheers

Rich

Excellent video!  Thanks for getting it posted.   :popcorn: :popcorn: :popcorn: 

Sorry it was such a pain though :(

Hey, isn't it missing something?  Like drivers?  You won't get far without those!  :Lol:

Hi

Thanks Kim, I'm glad the video works now.

Julian is putting the finishing touches to a riding car he is building and has built about 20 meters of track so fairly soon it will be another testing session.

Cheers

Woah - it is certainly not lacking Power (but perhaps a bit more weight on the driving wheels  :thinking::ThumbsUp:

Great to see a happy smile after the test  :whoohoo:   :cheers:

Hi Per

You noticed the wheel spin  ::)

A bit of pilot error, opening the regulator too quick.

The front springs are too weak as well. They need to be changed as the loco has bottomed out.

One or two more minor niggles but all in all a successful day.

She is booked in for the boiler inspector on Wednesday. She has to have another hydraulic test at 1 1/2 times working pressure, i.e. 120 PSI followed by a steam test. If all is well a certificate will be issued then maybe a trial run around the track.

Cheers

Woo Hoo!   :cartwheel:

That's fantastic, Rich!  Such fun to finally get to steam it up and make it work for a living!  Congratulations!
