An elegant solution to a challenging problem.  Well done, sir.  I always look forward to your next build, and this was no exception.

Once again I find myself looking forward to your next great MOC.

This model and the mention of "coal district" instantly made me think of the Ayrshire Railway Preservation Group and their small heritage railway at Dunaskin, East Ayrshire, not far from Kilmarnock where Andrew Barclay's works was (and still exists today as Brush Barclay).

They don't have an example of this particular type in the collection, but do specialise in small industrial diesel and steam locomotives and preserve them in-situ in the Ayrshire coal fields.

I am really looking forward to seeing the completed coal district project!

Agreed with all the previous posts, a very nice model with an elegant solution to the offset rod coupling problem.
Due to the length of the parts used though, it makes it "look" like that rear cam is hitting the track in lower rotation (though I know its not)
Have you thought about possibly using either of these: http://www.bricklink...m.asp?P=2853  ?
You'd still have to use the "telescopic" rod as they are shorter than the wheel pivot points, but they "may" give a better visual when in lower rotation?
Just a thought.
