  • Edenhouse 'Ralph' coal fired locomotive ...

    The locomotive uses the already tested and proven Roundhouse running gear . The buffers ,smoke box , pressure gauge and safety valve are also Roundhouse . The Boiler is subcontracted to order , the chassis and bodywork are made in house as i was told. The Loco feels solid in hand, heavy and firm and the bodywork is not flimsy at all. it is secured with hex screws all round and can be easily removed if you want to create a Hunlset looking locomotive from the chassis. The locomotive does not have a water pump , instead of this it comes with a precision Rectus valve to top up the water , the Rectus valve locks the feeder pipe in place so you can refill with just one hand and a water bottle. Edenhouse claim that you can get about a 10 min run on one tankful, though i have not yet tested that claim yet . My reasoning is that , if i have to keep tending a fire every few laps, i may as well give it a few squirts of water at the same time. I have only attempted to fire her up 3 times now and being a newbie to coal firing coupled with the fact that i may have purchased anthracite which was probably not the best quality in the market , the first 2 attempts did not go well . After some good tips 'n' tricks from the internet, the 3 attempt went much better and i got a few run laps out of her on my very uneven garden railway in the chilly danish breeze of 10 degrees centigrade.

  • Regner 'Fanny' logging Tram

    Renamed and detailed with a few bits and bobs to my liking, this logging loco returns from a days job. As a single oscillating cylinder, this model does not have a real steam cuffing sound so I cheated in the video by using a sound module from www.modelsounds.co.uk hidden in the crate on one of the wagons to give that effect. I highly recommend the sound module as you can put any sound you like on it and it will also be used for my battery diesel locomotives.

    Stuart Nr 1. Weighs about 8 kg , it is a large engine .The first Stuart No.1 was built by Mr. Stuart Turner over one hundred years ago. It runs sweet on air but is a hog ! i will need a really large boiler to hold this going for any extended period of time.Even my air compressor is struggling to keep it running on 2 bar in this video.
