Hi Sid

Looking good and by the way did you remember to offset the bolt on the boiler ring next to the firebox by about half an inch otherwise it will destroy the silicon tube motor joint the first time you start her up.

Andy


Don't recall any instructions about offsetting a bolt on the boiler ring. I vaguely remember a post in the conversation forum about a bolt but don't remember what it said. Can you enlighten me?

Hi Sid

If you go too pack 25 instructions page 216 [ it has the heading 'The figures and coal'] stage 99 the 1st pic shows the boiler with a red reference line, just read the instructions below this 1st picture.

Yes it is not discussed until almost the end of the build.I missed it in the instructions and had problems with my motor.The motor attaches to the drive gear with a piece of silastic tubing. The nut and bolt for the rearmost boiler ring is in the way so when you attach the body to the chassis and run the motor the tubing gets torn up by the boiler ring nut and bolt.As Andy said you have to shift the nut and bolt over as bit so it is out of the way of the tubing.

You train looks great so far!!!

Kind of late in the game. Looks like it should be included with the installation of the bands, especially if the bands are painted and stuck to the boiler, as mine were.

Assembled the Back Head and installed it to the Boiler Assembly. Thanks Andy, for reminding me about the rear band nut and bolt offset. I certainly would have missed it. Just found out the offset instruction is in Pack 25. I guess better late than never.

Hi Sid

A few of us were nearly caught out by the strap but at least your sorted on it now. Looking good and nice work on the back head.

After a lot of aggravation and a few #$%words and screaming for my wife to help with another pair of hands, I finally got both front deflector plates installed and the cab and cab floor attached to the Boiler. Still have a couple pieces to install yet namely the firebox board and another part I haven’t figured out yet where it goes. It’s called a water distribution valve. It’s probably in the instructions somewhere.

Thanks, I'll add it to the box I have along with all the spare screws and such that I have accumulated so far. The only other part that I haven't installed yet is the Diode Board for the firebox. Than it looks like I'll be ready to start working on the under carriage again.

Thanks for looking in. Has been fun so far even at times aggravating. Hardest part lately was installing the deflector plates on both side of the front of the boiler. Instant adhesive didn't cut it... overtime I tried to turn it over to do something else the slightest squeeze in the wrong place broke one or the other of the glue joints. I finally used 5 minute epoxy for all the joints and finally got them both installed for keeps.
