"Rosie" getting close to running on air

Post  Frostie on Sat 26 Feb 2011, 5:24 am





Pics of Rosie nearing completion, I am hoping to get her running on air next week, I just need to fit the Lubricator (waiting on a new Ram and block from STW), and the whistle.
The wheels have to be lined also.
Thanks to all who helped me and gave mme encouragement.

Tony, we will soon get the two together for a steaming session.

Rosie in steam

I finally got Rosie steamed up on saturday, just a couple of very small leaks of no real significance.
She is running very sweetly.
