Re: Oil firing

This has been discussed before on this board. I remember reading the post. Try a search.

Propane might work, depending on the size of the firebox. Someone also posted about that use in 3/4" locomotives

Re: LALS Web-Site

Cary, I have been checking every day for a month. Someone has dropped the ball badly on this. And before the outage, the old website said that a “new one was coming soon” since January.

I know that we are a volunteer group, but this is ridiculous.

Re: Engine Cleaner (exterior)

Re: Water strainer

Carl, if it was good enough for my '68 Mustang, it is good enough for my 1" LE 0-6-0....the same filter. Looked up Spectre inline filters, they will catch particles down to 40 microns.
