After my daughter ran my steamer, she hardley ever runs her electric. I asked her about it, in which she replied "it's boring, compared to the steamer"

Dwight, what I did on my RRSC 173 was to use 1/4" plate steel silver soldered 5/16" half round brass to the edge then put oak vanier on top. You get the look of wood on top with the weight of steel underneth, plus it makes it easier to bolt the running boards from the bottom.
Well, I finally got the braided line tested at work. Unfortunatly they tested lower then expected. The barb pulled out from the line at around 250 lbs of force, see pictures. I was talking with the quailty personal, we came up with another idea, what about adding roughly a 3/16 thick cable where you...

Thinking of all the work, and then probably having to repeat this proccess a few years down the line. The idea came to me what about...
And now for something completely different. What about using the air/ vacuum line as the safety chain link between cars.

I know this because I am the person who had that color mixed to match a colo...

I am loking for a little larger steamer to buy. I am looking for either an Atlanic or a Pacific, 7.5" gauge, oil fired if possible. I am looking for pretty much a turn key locomotive. I have looked around Discover Live Steam, but have not recived any response back in over a week. If you know of any ...
One trick you could do to not have the thick paint build up would have been to adjust the fan pattern down to a needle spray pattern, also adjust the paint down to a fine mist while turning the air down to accomodate.
Well, I got the two stay bolts fixed and they held pressure. The bad part is that one of the stays next to it started leaking. After fixing that one the other side leaked, as well as another one , and a few different weeping stays. So, I know what I am asking Santa for; a new boiler. Thank you for a...
