[MLC] Cold winter steam

Posted by Gerd on Thursday, 23 December 2021

Hi folks,

yesterday, I made a trip to the club layout to run the last steam trains in 2021 together with Jonas. We had -3°C so the steam plums were great.

Unfortunately, the lubrictaor in my Shay still causes trouble, so I had to stop running earlier as expected. I tried but was not able to fix the issues in place, actually, I found some more weak points.

So at the end of the day, I loaded the Shay in to the car and brought her home into my workshop for overhaul. Beside the lubricator issues, I expect leaky piston rings, so there’ll be a long list with repairs over winter time including some upgrades here and there.

Anyhow, I which you all a Merry Christmas season, keep save and healthy and I which all the best for the next year. Enjoy your hobby and we’ll see us.

Cheers, Gerd
