    Good morning,

    the engine runs with coal, like the originial.

    "He's more than crazy" :D :rolleyes: :oops:

    More clips will come some day, when the new cab is installed. There are also many details missing.

    Hello Gerd!

    What a nice 'little' live steamer! Do you want to add typical logging-lokey details to Diana? (I guess that's her name, ain't it?) Turning the little lady into a logging workhorse... ;)

    You are lucky not to live in the part of Bavaria which had record snow falls in the last weeks. Otherwise you couldn't have run her without mounting a GIANT snowplow to her front pilot! :D:D:D

    Pretty cool Gerd! Thanks for the video clips.

    How often do you have to flush the boiler and do you have to treat the water?
