Now that Christmas has come and gone, and the same with the New Year, how's the locomotive coming along?

And I love the support!

Its progressing! I have wheels, stickers and custom rods/valve gear pieces being drafted or on their way to me. Lots of work to be done with trial runs, but it is coming together. Thank you for your continued interest!

Thank you both! Having this thing finished will be a bit of a dream come true. First draft of the walschaerts valve gear is running...a video is over on my flickr.

In progress! Several elements of the locomotive are being rebuilt after the first trial run period. I am also decreasing the gear ratio from 3:1 to 1:1. Pilot truck, trailing truck, centipede tender, gear tower...all improved.

These extensive changes take time, but ensure that the final build will be a great runner and fun to build.

 

Thank you for your continued interest!

Hello again Chris,

 

Now that it has been over a month (almost @0 since the last update, has anything else changed in the model? Or are you happy enough with it to have instructions made and ready to go?
