Andrew, watched your vidio, just a couple of tips, keep the fire up to the firehole door, you will get a much longer run that way, otherwise the coal will burn away and you will have a problem recovering it, do not use too much blower when you are stationary, you are just wasting steam and half the fire is going out the stack,keep an eye on the water level in the tender, it will use it up very quickly and you will find that you will need the pump on all the time.
I wish I was coming to DH this year to see it, I had mine there two years ago.
Good Steaming
