    Thanks Wizard .Not as many as it my seam .The brass flat stock and some of the bar stock is the only things I have had to buy that are really costly ,with the new traffs it has gone why up. . By casting the larger brass things I have saved alot.I have a friend who is a plumber so I get all his old brass fixtures . I had to build my furance and aquire some tools .But I have done very well at keeping the matrial cost down .I get alot of metal at a scrape yard also.Thanks Dale

    Well, I fired my loco... Good and bad, everything worked good. The cyl. leaked a lot though, through the solder joints, I think I will put a sleave in the passages from the valves to the cyl. All in all not to bad.More work for this winter!
