Re: Tender Water Valves

I find piping or plumbing up my loco and tender to be very different from my usual experience; no time pressure, no wife reminding me she needs to run laundry and use the restroom, perfectly OK if I stop when it is not completed... Actually enjoyable. I don't even get to use my favorite plumbing cus...

Re: Flexible steam tubing suggestions?

Don Young did not leave very much room between the front wall of the saddle and the cylinder supply line; a commercial 5/16" Flare Nut (5/8" hex)...

Sorry; I was not clear. 25/16 is the ratio of the area between the two, not a dimension. The area of a circle is Pii * R squared. So in comparing the area of a 5/16" line to a 1/4" (4/16") line, I just squared 5 and 4, which is 25 vs. 16.

Re: Flexible steam tubing suggestions?

Rob: Great suggestions, thanks. I was going from (faulty) memory when I wrote 1/4"; Don Young did specify 5/16", and that is what I am using. The difference is significant, 25/16 or 156%!!!
