Nothing to be sorry about Keith, if you have a question ask away. Most railway related questions will be answered on this forum but not all by me of course.

As I remember, also at Enfield Loco, the clack made a thump when closing the steam injector. This was caused by the sudden stop of water passing through the steam injector.

Oh mate, halcyon days, we didn't realize at the time, how good they really where.

injector and clack noises

When we operated injectors full size if they where picking up properly as you
would remember they would what we called sing a sound perculiar to injectors.I dont know the rate of water that they supplied to the boiler but it must have been quite substantial.On my own minature loco the injector pumps at 4 pints a minute and when working it sings away just like full size,
and the clack goes down with a click.If you want to see a picture of my loco,
look on our club website. www. cramec.org

Hi Dave,

What happened to the Brittania loco that Frank Bannister built? It must be worth a bomb now!

Frank Banister

Dave I fired to frank a few times but he never mentioned a model Brit,depending on the guage or if it was live steam they can fetch a hefty price. my own engine is insured for 7000,It needs quite a bit of maintaining
as it works practicaly every Sunday at Canvey and usualy covers about 10 mile, the boiler has to be tested yearly by an inspector who issues a certificate if all is well.Last Sunday the mechanical lubricator was playing up,
so i have that stripped down at the moment,but its a very rewarding hobby
keeps my hand in at firing and driving just like the good old days.
