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 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.

A rare view of an ancient Narrow Gauge oil burnin' steam locomotive as we race the "Sugar Cane Train" on Maui on the KLR650 at a whopping 10 mph as she lets off some steam. Interview with the first female engineer to run the train. A look behind the scenes back at the shop to see what it takes to keep a small railroad going.

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.

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.
