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
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"...

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.
Steamtrain (s) in the Netherlands and Germany. Spectaculaire smoke and steam chasing.
Stoom in Holland en Duitsland.

Eisenbahn-Fest Staßfurt 1/2 - Steam Train - Züge
Dieser Film ist auch auf meiner DVD "Eisenbahnfeste Staßfurt und Nossen"
In Staßfurt fand im Juni 2011 ein wunderschönes Eisenbahnfest statt.
Vor Ort waren Dampflokomotiven unterschiedlicher Baureihen, von denen auch
einige unter Dampf waren.
Man konnte Pendelfahrten auf dem Führerstand machen und auch ein Güterzug
fuhr für die Besucher um Foto- und Videoaufnahmen zu ermöglichen.
Als Gast kam dann noch ein Sonderzug, der von der ölgefeuerten Lokomotive
41 096, die mit einer imposanten Geräuschkulisse ihrer Brenner imponierte.
Dieser Film ist Teil 1 des zweiteiligen Filmes.
This video is a part from my DVD "Eisenbahnfeste Staßfurt und Nossen".
