How to Fire A Live Steam Ruby
This video explores the basic concepts and methods to operate a Live Steam Ruby from Accucraft. Many of the ideas are central to all live steam locomotives in this scale and can be applied to other engines. Although I have customized my Ruby you will find that it still has the same concepts as a basic as-shipped Ruby from Accucraft. Emphasis is placed on good preparation and we explore the materials needed for a successful run of a live steam locomotive. Each item and method mentioned has a reason for it such as there is a reason that I put the steam oil in before the boiler water and I actually have 5 or more brands of steam oil. The reasons for or against any particular item or order of operations are beyond the scope of this introductory video. If you have specific questions please ask them in the comments section below. Perhaps, based on feedback, we may make future videos that will explore some of these topics in greater detail. Again, these discussions are purposely left out of this video to keep it on topic with an introductory How-To guide. If you have years of experience and own a dozen locos I would not be surprised to hear that you have developed your own methods, but his video is intended for the newcomer. As with all How-To videos on the Internet you are advised to take all precautions necessary and that we are not liable for any damages that may occur due to operation of any live steam locomotive. Always follow your locomotive's directions from its manufacturer in order to continue to receive support from them.

5 inch Gauge Freelance 4-10-2 "Innovare" Live steam
"Innovare" is based on 9F running gear weighing in at 360 pounds which gives the engine amazing pulling power. The boiler is silver soldered with four one inch diameter superheater flues, 24 half inch diameter flue tubes and a 100psi working pressure. Feed by twin injectors with steam-operated water valves. Variable blast nozzle, with Exhaust diverter allowing the blast nozzle to be by-passed under light load conditions, with the fire controlled entirely by the blower. Cylinders are in cast iron with piston valves actuated by Walschaert's gear with pole reverser in the cab. The reverser has notches for all forward gear positions, with a hinged gate and interlocking lever which prevents reverse being inadvertently engaged - all parts are in silver steel, heat treated. There is a cylinder pre-heat valve in the cab. Wheels run in needle roller bearings - there are no horn blocks, the axles run in cannon boxes sandwiched between substantial frame spacers with lateral control by a central spigot. The engine is comprehensively equipped with lubricators, gathered into functional groups. The cab is comrehensively fitted out and includes - along with the more usual controls - lubricator line pressure gauge, external air blower valve (for starting), vacuum limit valve, variable blast control, Exhaust diverter valve and hand pump stop valve. There is a large chime whistle fitted horizontally under the locomotive which produces a fine note. Compensated vacuum braking to all coupled wheels, with vacuum ejector and brake valve for train.





Steam in the Rockies - Eureka & Palisade 4-4-0 #4 on the Durango & Silverton
Now available on Blu-ray & DVD: Steam in the Rockies Vol. 1 - The Durango & Silverton http://www.steamtrainvideos.com Eureka and Palisade 4-4-0 #4 runs for possibly the last time during the 2012 Railfest on the Durango and Silverton. An authentic 1875 Baldwin built wood-burner, the 'Eureka' was lovingly restored to operation in 1991 by owner Dan Markoff. In 2013 the locomotive will be due for its FRA 15 year / 1472 day inspection and may not operate in Colorado again. August 17-19, 2012 http://www.steamtrainvideos.com





Live Steam Kid in HD
A friend's kid running my 0-6-0 Live Steamer (only after I've taken a test lap myself on the rough, portable "lawn" track...) It's not often that I get to be a passenger on my own train! Here, in the beginning of the video, you can also see how easy it is to transform one of my prototype-like wooden coaches to a passenger carrying car. Also, some TIG welding of a truck for new rolling stock. Note how "clean" TIG welding is - no smoke, sparks or slag - just melting and fusing the steel pieces together... Instead of subtitles, here's a short note about the audio: At 1 min. 30 sec. or so we are talking about the water pumps and bypass valves. I'm checking the water gauge, and my friend asks "Don't you trust the pumps?" and I reply that I want to look at the setting of the bypass valve. While TIG welding, I warn everybody not to look into the arc, and that the video camera won't be damaged by it. When explaining to the older boy how I am fusing the steel parts together, he replies, behind his mask: "I can feel the heat"...

5 inch Gauge BR Standard Class 7 70000 Britannia Live Steam Locomotive
Eleven long years in the making but Jack's Lovely fine scale scratch built Britannia makes it's inaugural run at Walton Park. This is a highly detailed but functional model, all the detail is scratch made with no use of lost wax castings or shop bought fittings.





Live Steam West Valley Consolidation 2-8-0 first steam trial
A friend's 2-8-0 that started as a pile of parts from a 30 year old group build project by the West Valley Live Steamers. It is oil fired. In the video you can observe unloading, filling of water and fuel, oiling around, firing up and running. The ballast hoppers were partially full of sand for a heavy load. It had no problem pulling them. There are some fire issues, piston valve blowby issues, timing issues and a few other bugs to work out but it ran the first time. Tests were carried out at the Sagebrush Short Line Railroad in Ridgecrest, CA.
