Large / 91199 2-4-2
February 22, 2013, 03:39:09 PM
I am now the proud owner of a 2-4-2. I really like the new drive block and the moving valve rods. They move in sync with the piston rod instead of 90 degrees ahead, but that doesn't matter, the movement looks neat.
It has a steam pump on the left water tank that would be very valuable as a spare part...

What is it's function? Is it used to pump water out of the tank, like for firefighting, or does it suck water INTO the tank from a nearby stream?

I also take it the wire going down beside the tank is the steam exhaust, so where does the water output of the pump hook in?

Members knowledgeable in logging or mining technology please help!

Large / 2-6-6-2 motor mount screws
December 17, 2012, 11:33:49 AM
After not so much running time my 1:20.3 2-6-6-2 had the front truck run in idle. The cause was the motor mount screws were loose in the first place and now they have fallen off.

Being in Europe I don't fancy sending the whole loco in for replacement. In fact, if any of you can give me the specifications of the screws No. 10183 that attach the motor to the gear box I would rather buy them from a hobby shop.
