BCRR – Testrun of my Forney after overhaul

Posted by Gerd on Tuesday, 27 October 2015


last sunday, I was at our club layout for the season close steam up and tested my Forney after the overhaul of the last weeks. The loco runs well and the maintenance of the valve gear shows good results. Anyway, I found 3 issues that have to be done as well.

The steam valve for the injector is leaky, the oil pump delivers too much oil and at least, I’ll spend some attention to the blower needle in the smoke box, since the set up (original TJV) seems not to match perfectly. I hope to get the boiler working better with a proper set blower system.
