Brian Warwick - nothing wrong with your post at all and nothing for you to apologise for imho.

Tis some of the others that should be doing that.

Forum has two problems - members are incapable of keeping to the subject matter in hand and Mods not as on the ball as they should be and it is getting worse and spoiling it for me hence my low number of posts

As it’s under guarantee I would suggest you don’t start playing with it, Warco have a 6 month on site option to use.

Dismantling could void your warranty.

Could not agree with you more Ian

I have never understood why people jeopardise their warranty by dismantling when they do not need to.

Thread: any boiler testers out there

The Model Boat Mayhem forum cater for steam boats - I belong to it - This question has been asked before on there and it seems it is below the bar rating requirements.

It may be worth joining and asking your question where they cater for model steam boats .

Free to join and a goof helpful crowd.

No sex, politics or religion, please.

Oh dear Neil - that is bad news.

As a sex mad Member of Parliament who goes to church every Sunday, may I ask you to reconsider please ?

Thread: L and Y PUG in 7.25 inch scale - is it a sensible first project please ?
14/06/2018 18:44:09


Redsetter - Decided to take your advice - many thanks for replying.

KWIL  -  as original post - In a word, would it be a suitable model for a first attempt please ?

Neil  -  interesting comment  -  I was thinking of 7.25 as have a field available for this project. Laying a ground level track appeals to me more than a building a raised level track.

Thread: leaking boiler?
13/06/2018 17:15:11

Cannot help you on that one as still wearing L plates, but Jason seems to be well clued up on these matters so hopefully he will see your post and reply.


PS - may be worth sending him a message ?

This may be an alternative solution.

On ebay - item no 352374527244 - a Minnie boiler currently at £89.23 with 18 hours to go.

I am no boiler expert but looks ok - perhaps some of our more experienced members could comment or offer advice ?

Hope this helps.

Station Road Steam have a rolling chassis plus parts which looks well made.

In a word, would it be a suitable model for a first attempt please ?

Thank you

This is interesting - there is a chap on the mamod toy steam forum called slash 1953 with exactly the same problem

Boiler looks as if it is made of copper from his photo.

Thanks reply Jason

I think it looks as it may go in the centre at the top but just one safety valve.

Can a boiler with just one safety valve meet the current regulations please ?

Thank you


13/06/2018 08:04:12

Looking at a part started one but cannot see any safety valves on the drawing.

Would appreciate knowing if would be able to use at a club as designed please as not familiar with current regulations.?

Thank you

That was quick - many thanks indeed.

Found articles - engine called SIRENA by JJ Constable.

Well pleased

I have a Suart d10 which I am told is the basis of a 5 inch gauge vertical boiler


I am told there was a series of articles on it many years ago in the model engineer but struggling to find.

Any help on locating any info would be much appreciated.

If anybody has built one / owns one would be pleased to hear from you.

Thank you

Apart from the Launceston Steam Railway, which is in town, I have yet to find anybody in the least bit interested in our hobby in the area. A meet up in Devon would be more than welcome.
