So pleased it's finished still got to change one injector but one is working plus hand pump.

So surprised that the new injector still won't pick up but the first did not.

Luckily Julian is going to Fix it for me when he gets chance.

Looking forward to Christmas Run on 27 hope it's not too cold but sure the exit net I won't mind.

Happy steaming Guys

Well done Ron!

I found your epic most informative and learned a lot from it. Are you planning to build anything else?

Best wishes,

Dave

That's great news Ron I hope you get a lot of running as you deserve it for the perseverance you have had in getting the loco to this point. If it is cold on the 27 just think of how that will look with a bit of throttle, get some pictures and let us see it running.

Regards

Martin

Well done Ron, you deserve several pats on the back, if only for perseverence. I'm sure others would have given up.

It's great that you are there with it Ron. I've been quietly following the trials and tribulations, which has been most entertaining. That lining gives it good character yes. My daughter is the arty type as well. I happily let here emulsion the walls and ceiling and gloss the woodwork. I always knew she would come in useful.

I'm off to open the bottle of champagne that I've had on ice, waiting for you to finish, for god knows how long.laugh

Long may it run!

All the best

Steve
