I have run my Mogul many times over the last year and I would regard it as one of those classic engines of the period both in appearance and the simplicity of operation. Who needs a water level glass when you are familier with your engine's moods, sounds and performance. Well that's all very well but all my other steamers have their moods and sounds also, so to be on the safe side I have a water level LED sensor which fits on top of the Goodall filler with the connection to a battery in the tender. When the boiler is well topped up it's remarkable how long it will run before the LED glows red. Mark you, like all 'good' drivers I do like to top up on a regular basis but this warning is a safe-guard.
The question I address to other Mogul drivers concerns the amount of condensate that these large cylinders want to push out, even a brief stop to top up is enough to douse the fire out when re-opening the steam valve. It seems that even taking great care with the gas and regulator you will have to 'stand by' with your lighter. Of course whilst running there's no problem
What happens with you other Mogul runners? Thanks Trevor
