LNER COAL FIRED ATLANTIC
« on: May 06 2014 14:36 »
This coal fired G3 locomotive has had a long history and was originally constructed from a late 1930s kit by Mr Wallis who was the father of the late Ray Wallis.
It had a long period of never being run until recently following an overhaul be Roger Marsh.
It can be seen running at John Tomlinsons meet in April/14 on the following you tube video

The engine is running on very minimum throttle on a gradient with six teaks. The idea being not having to adjust this when descending after the summit. With a powerful engine such as this presents no problem, and it is nice to see the engine working with some realism.

Don't take my tram engine too seriously folks.
It will probably be dismantled for fuel for my next steaming session.
'Other' donations gratefully received!
Good live steaming to you all

No play fair with all us other children Trevor. I think this is just jealousy that you really want a certain blue engine all if your own.

A great looking locomotive. Can anyone shed any light on the kit manufacturer from the 30's?

Thanks
