Hello

Guess i can also show my engine:
It runs really nice for the first minute...
The fizzy sound in the background comes from the safety valve...
At 1:22 you can see the small amount of steam coming out of it.

Very nice.
Nice boiler too. I hadn't seen one like that (I'm new).

Congratulations to all you slow runners

A special one for Florian as it's powered by his own Scotch Boiler.

Florian is that an adaptation of Walscherts valve gear Neat.

Best Regards
Bob

Hi Bob

Yeah, its kind of an excenter which has been copied from the walscherts gear.
But without the reversing gear.
But that is an option for later...
