A picture of my engine taken at the SAC w/e at Old Warden last summer, showing 'steel' hub caps and name rings: it was rare for agricultural engines to have these fittings in brass. The walk board and tool box has also been replaced with a more accurate representation of the Burrell type: thinner board, with a steel strip at the back and a more useful sized tool box. I also lengthened the whistle bell by 15mm - to lower the tone - and shortened the stem from the cylinder block. The boiler bands have also been increased in size: they were a bit mean, by Burrell standards, and the engine has the new pattern chunky flywheel.

Tim,

i've always been a fan of Madeline and was part responsible for me choosing STW to build my own.

The additional work you have done really compliments the engine well.

I thought i would make you photo look a little more realistic and remove the seat.

I think you would struggle to identify this as a model.. hope you didn't mind.

Nick

Hi 4" people..

There all looking really nice... Tim thanks for the info on your tool box that all worked out great for me..

A question tho.. the original 4" chimney MW's days had a really small sized chimney at the base.. the new ones that STW now make and Julia and Tim have made look a million times better.. I cant help but look at the 2" version and think that it is also a little small.. it just doesn't look right to me some how.. is it too tall? or is the base a little small... does the bigger chimney effect the drafting of the engine i'm guessing it steams ok? any info would be great..


Thanks

Jo

Chimney diameters

Post  Steve Traill on Thu 04 Feb 2010, 9:42 am

Having run my 4" engine for three years with the 'slim chim' and then replaced it with the wider one it was very difficult to notice any difference in how the engine performed. If anything the 'bark' was slightly less with the wider chimney when working hard. It does look a lot better though and was worth changing for that alone.
Regards
Steve

Jo,

According to Steve, the chimney on the 2" engine is somewhere between the two. Not as thin as the slim chim but not as fat as the current one supplied.

When the 2" chimney was originally designed Steve only had an inclin that the original 4" slim version was too thin and nothing at that stage had been confirmed. He therefore made it a bit wider to try to compensate.

Ideally it should still be about 6mm wider at the base if compared to the wider version.

Thanks for the info guys,

It was just a wondering thought in my mind!
I probably will leave it with the one we have as it looks ok as it is.
Hope your all enjoying your engines, I'm looking forward to steaming my engine soon.

Thanks

Wheel painting

Post  Steve Traill on Sat 03 Apr 2010, 1:18 pm

Here are some pictures of my set up for painting wheels & other bits. I bought an old scrap caravan for 60 & converted it into a spray shop. It is ideal as even when it's cold I can have the caravan up to 35 degrees in 20 minutes with a 2kw fan heater.



I put a zinc rich primer coat on first, then a dark red undercoat & then three gloss coats





The engine stand is ideal for sraying the wheels as I can spin the wheel around whilst spraying and get to both sides



The nearly finished wheel, a coat of clear lacquer still to apply. Who says the camera doesn't lie? it looks much more red in the photo than in daylight, the narrow line is a nice rich cream and not the off white that it looks in the photo (the black is pretty realistic though!!!). The colour is Craftmaster crimson lake and it looks just right. It sprays easily too! The lining is done with a beugler pen cheers

loving the caravan spray booth! Very Happy

for the 2" version I got a cheap plastic green house from B&Q, sealed up the bottom and thats great for spraying stuff in if your stuck for space. prob be too small for a 4" though...

Anybody got any pictures now that the locos are finished, this thread hasn't been updated since 2010 so would be nice to see the finished article!

Cheers
