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.
This is a very exquisite and impressively detailed locomotive project that i recently acquired. it is 2.5" gauge. The video shows its amazing detail right down to the minute stuff. Loco dimensions : length 62cm width 13cm Smokebox diameter 8.5cm Tender dimensions length 36cm width 13cm height 16cm
Sorry about the mobile phone video quality. Live steam test of this 15 year old scratch built steam locomotive of the famous BR80. I worked on it converted it from alcohol to gas firing, replaced the boiler and added the necessary fittings. A few more teaks and she will be ready
With a few modifications: -i have already installed a stained wood front buffer yesterday and 2 roundhouse couplers. -I have made an exhaust chuffer . -i painted the flywheel black -I painted numerous other parts black like the copper pipework, silver manometer , safety valve and a roof pillars amongst a few other things. - i modified the reverse lever and made a better handle control -Then i installed heat resistant silicone to both the reverser and the regulator handles which seems to get rather hot during operation and scalded me fingers. -I added some sacks of coal and a couple of tools.
An Accucraft engineering live steam model of the Baldwin Live Steam 2-4-2T. The original locomotive 'Lyn' was built for the Lynton & Barnstaple Railway, by the Baldwin Locomotive Works, in 1898. Gas fired, 2.4GHz 2 channel steam control.
Live steam loco running on my newly laid garden railway.This was mainly to test drive the track which only consists of about 50 odd meters of track. I will be laying some more loops. Due to my uneven lawn it is quite a bumpy ride but it only adds to the fun , hence the name 'The Bumpington Railway'
An exquisite Steamcraft model,the 4-6-0 GWR KING CLASS EXPRESS was built by David Taylor himself . He ran it intermittently and between runs it stood in a glass box in his office. I am honoured to own this fine example. it is the 3rd of his lovely products in my collection. The locomotive is gas fired with double acting cylinders.
