As with last year, after visiting the Alan Keef Ltd Open Day we visited the Perrygrove Miniature Railway for their vintage trains day. This was to be a much bigger event than last year as there would be four steam locomotives in service, three diesels and forty trains operating throughout the day on their 1 1/2 mile return trip. The locomotives operating were: - 0-6-0T 'Spirit Of Adventure' built in 1993 by the Exmoor Steam Railway - 0-6-0T 'Ursula' built in 1999 by James Waterfield, working the vintage trains. (She had just been retubed and got her new boiler certificate the day before) - 2-6-2T 'Lydia' built in 2008 by Alan Keef Ltd - 0-4-0+0-4-0 K1 Garratt built by the Bush Mill Railway (Unfortunately she was later to fail and was taken back to the shed) - 4wDH 'Jubilee' built in 1998 by Hunslet - 0-4-0D 'Workhorse' built in 1963 by Motor Rail of Bedford - 0-4-0D Lister Railtruck no.54181 built in 1964 Shots included in this video are: - K1 rolling down the gradient heading to Perrygrove - 'Ursula' charging up the 1:30 gradient from Heywood Station up to Oakiron Station. - K1 moving off her train at Perrygrove to take on water, 'Jubilee' is also seen whilst 'Workhorse' & the Lister Railtruck bring out the rail train, K1 then moves off onto the opposite line to head back into the shed. - 'Ursula' arriving into Perrygrove Station whilst 'Lydia' can be heard charging up the gradient. - 'Spirit Of Adventure' & 'Lydia' are seen rolling down the first of the three long curves on the line after leaving Oakiron, afterwords 'Workhorse' and the Lister Railtruck are seen heading the opposite way. They are then seen returning under the footbridge. - 'SoA' is seen climbing up the gradient. Then only just making it, seen arriving into Oakiron Station then departing, only just making it again she is seen through the trees rolling down to Perrygrove. - 'Ursula' passing through Heywood Station then seen rolling down the gradient. - 'Lydia' & 'SoA' climbing up the gradient to Oakiron. - Back at Perrygrove 'Lydia' moves off to the shed and 'SoA' follows suit. The two are seen with K1 outside the shed, being cleaned after a long days work. - 'Ursula' is seen shunting stock for a train for railway staff and family, then for the last time of the day is seen climbing up the gradient once again. Then seen from the shed at Perrygrove (I was given permission to step into the yard and take this shot). Filmed on a Panasonic HDC-HS60 HD Camcorder Enjoy

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.





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.

House With Scale Steam Train
My dad built this train about 40 years ago (though he just rebuilt it, and the stock car is brand new). The track for its current location (around our house in Casper, WY), was put in close to 30 years ago. I've since moved, but he just sent me some footage of he and my brother running it again, so I edited a couple minutes of it together. This is the real thing; it runs on coal and water. I definitely recommend the high quality version of the video.





1/3 scale Darjeeling Himalayan Railway B-Class Steam Locomotive in 7.25" gauge
This beautiful locomotive was built by John Heald of Rotorua, New Zealand. In this video we take the B-Class out for a typical day at the track, including a sequence of loading the engine onto a custom made trailer towed behind a Honda Jazz (Fit) with CVT. Then it's off to the beautiful River Edge Park Railway in Whakatane, New Zealand. We also take a look at stability of this remarkable locomotive under high speeds using on board cameras. Special adjustable Danly coil springs prevent the locomotive from porpoising; the leaf springs are dummy and just for show. Plans and castings will be made available for this locomotive, if you are interested check out our website at www.sonadaworks.com.

Eisenbahn-Fest Staßfurt 1/2 - Steam Train - Züge
Dieser Film ist auch auf meiner DVD "Eisenbahnfeste Staßfurt und Nossen" zu sehen. 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".
