My friend George and I each received our Accucraft CP Hudson's this week. Saturday we decided to stretch their legs out. Both ran really well, 45 minutes on one tank of alcohol and plenty of power. Mine was blowing off steam constantly, I have since trimmed the wicks.

David,

My safety was popping around 80lbs, slightly lower than on George's engine but still too high. The front safety did not go off that I noticed so I am wondering where that one is set. I have the wicks trimmed below the recommended 3/8" and packed pretty tight so I was considering plugging one of the burners for summer running. The temp was 29 degrees when we were running and Charles; I was disappointed we did not get snow, it would have been even better.

David,

I will have my RH at cabin fever Friday and Saturday morning. I also plan to bring 5 CP coaches (MTH 1:32 repaints) and an express reefer, maybe we could put together a decent size consist for the engines.
