Finally finished painting this beast. Time to put a fire in the girl for the first time and see where all my leaks are.

I believe you ment 1466N28 as I do not see 1466N2 in the catalog.

Putting fire to Northern for the first time.To get the most crap out of the boiler I put in 3 cheap safety valves and fired her up 3 different times. First time I pulled the fire at 60 lbs. then 90 lbs. and then 150 lbs. and blew her down each time. I found from experience the safteys get clogged with junk on the first firings. Now I put in Superscale safteys because I think most of the boiler debrie is out.

Hello Paul,
Congratulations! Your cab looks like a 'home cabin', ready to run! Just in time as a big christmas present.
Best luck to you and your engine!

This video is of my 1690 Northern in Florida last week. The Northern 1637 I just finished has not seen a video camera yet.

Finally got around to posting the first time on the railroad. This is Nick Edward's Wimberley Tx railroad.Nick is in the first picture.
The locomotive is a Beast ! We blew her down and the next day Bob Hornsby lettered her. The man is an artist ! I left the lettering to the master.
This is Bob at Thanksgivin, and Nick at the Keisers .

Shortly I'm off to Florida for the winter meets. Always, A GREAT time of trains and fellowship with friends.
When I get back to the Keiser shops in March I'm going to drag in Mike's Northern and gaudy it up a bit with detail.
Example to follow of my 1690 Northern. I study pictures and then draw stuff out and then make it.
