New Lika's what are the changes?

Post  TheFodenBrothers on Tue 17 May 2016, 4:39 am

I am signed up for the new batch of Lika's but wondering if anyone knows of any agreed changes yet?

I know there is going to be changes with the boiler, motion gear and brakes but does anyone know what yet?

Cheers Very Happy

I spoke to Dean when I placed my order... He mentioned they were going to have a meeting about the Boiler 'in a few weeks' since the meeting had to be pushed back. He did mention to me that they are leaning to make it much more like the original... including burners etc. which made me happy! But then again all that was still in the air since they had yet to have the meeting.

I am sure Dean or Steve will post all changes once they have finalized the design.

That is very exciting news!!!!

It would be amazning if the boiler and burners could be more like the original.

Did the original boilers have self regulating water levels? or is that way too early still?

The so-called 'Feed Water Automatic' was only introduced by the Stanley Brothers in 1915. But I think it would be fairly easy to equip a Likamobile with one. I daresay many pre-1915 Locomobiles and Stanleys have one by now.
