      K4 Steamups

      Now that's a steam effect - cool and not very windy in Maryland.

       

       

      My K4 and Pennsy coaches, and Dan's coaches passing with Noel's Aster mikado.  That's Dan in the background, and Jerry (Naptowneng) up front.

      I should have titled this thread "K4 Steamups" as that's what I have been doing.  Between a long boating trip and other activities, most of my trains hardly moved a wheel.  The K4 was my go-to engine for the big tracks though, and I am slowly figuring out how to use the axle pump.  I also got the oiler to work at last.  For all you worriers - I did run it completely out of water a couple of times, and it has run half-a-dozen days without much steam oil.  No signs of damage - it did run faster once I got the oiler really working!

       

      Anyway, here's a quick video from yesterday:
