Just thought Id show off my Wilesco Steam Engine that I just got done converting. When I started, it was and old Roller model, I made a new crankshaft, valve arm, flywheel and the mount to hold it on the boiler. Fabbed up some bunkers for the back and then some new pipe work for a nicer look. I even extended the boiler and added a different whistle, she runs pretty smooth and quiet. Been working on a Rudy K. traction engine yet.

That looks really nice! Great job on the bunkers. Do you run this on solid fuel (Esbitt)?
If you haven't already, pick up Rudys book/plans on his traction engine, its fantastic.

Thanks John, yeah it runs off esbit tablets. I remade the try for the tablets, its bigger so I can run more tablets for more steam presure. I already have a Rudy book, have the bunkers, the outer boiler casing and a few other small parts made for it.
