Wow Ulrich, that was great! The first thing I seen when I logged in here this morning. I was hopeing their web site had a view with the shell off. I like to see the working parts.
When the propane ignited, that flash that could be seen under the loco was great.
You come up with the neatest stuff!
Mike, the working parts of this loco are exactly those of the prototype - a two cylinder steam engine with Walschaerts gear.
It is a fully working scale model of the prototype, with the bcylinders being slightly larger, though!
Thanks for the kudos, I just came by this manufacturer by chance. Seems to be a new player in the field of live steam locos.
Only to wet your appetite - did you see the announcement for the Russian Decapod?
