Carl B, I'm on it! Great idea. Thanks. I have 2, will do both that way. I would like to find 1 more so that all 3 match.

Re: Boiler Check Valve Manufacturer?

SZulderveen, I'd like 3 when they are ready. Make the top cover with a much larger hex than are shown on the one I have.

Re: Uh... help me verify?

How does it work? Looks like an air connection on the globe, is the bent brass tab a way to depress the brass plunger? What is that brass plunger?

Re: Uh... help me verify?

An update: I, like many of you, have bought and sold successfully on eBay over the many years. I have had a few run-ins with scams but never lost money. This situation with the Maxitrak locomotive auction has worked out fine, the offer/listing was legitimate and the transaction has been successful. ...

Re: Could this work?

Yes, I can see that would be ideal. However, I have turbulators on RMI Forney, they work great. I’m sure there are efficiencies vs. the ideal, but they definitely do the job. Low fuel consumption, no odor... lots of steam.

Injector Questions

I'm wondering about pipework for injectors. I have 2 locos with Superscale injectors, both piped with 5/16 lines in and out (I think... not near the locos this weekend while I ponder this question). Both setups work fabulously. My question is this: what is the relationship of the water supply and de...
