Article in June's OLD GLORY

Post  sonick45 on Thu 26 May 2011, 5:25 am

hello fellow builders,

For those of you that don't buy Old Glory, i recommend you do. (no i'm not on commission).
This months (june) magazine (issue 256) has a two page article on a Burrell 4" DCC RL based on The President which is the same as ours only this one is on strakes not rubbers.

The builder Roger Kightley makes some interesting points about the build and running of the engine.

One useful tip i that the balance pipe between the belly tank and tender is over size to allow the water to level out and flow quick enough so to aid filling the tank smoothly. The scale pipe does not allow quick enough flow thus making filling the engine a pain as you constantly have to stop to allow the water to flow through to the tender.

The photos are good too..

cheers
Nick

That engine was scratch built over many years, I spoke to the builder at Old Warden last year, he had to change the drawings I believe to ensure he had the longer motion as per the fullsize engine. Regarding the balance pipe on our model I have not received it yet but the fitting on the tender and belly pan is much bigger than your typical hosepipe bore so I should think we may not have the same problem.

Roger has built a super model though, good article about it too!!
