Have plenty of mesh screen left over from when I made radiant burners. Decided to wrap this one, but wasn't sure what size to use. First thing I noticed is Aristo put a screen 2" from the end, I'm thinking to reduce the amount of fuel to the front and maybe limit smoke box melt downs and more evenly distribute the fuel. Anyway, following is the results:
1: the screen within the burner
2: plain burner
3: larger mesh screen
4: finer mesh screen
Either one will reduce the sound of the burner, nice additional feature. LiG

Here's Mike pulling a string of USAT Smoothside cars. All metal so very heavy and have BB inserted in the side frames. Started by itself with no wheel slippage. Used much less fuel when only pulling three.
