Thanks again for the wonderful journey, just re-read the thread from start to finish, thanks for sharing this with us!
Sorry Bill, I didn't proof read before posting. It was suppose to read "That tells me it has good distribution.." I meant the heat is distributed through that very large boiler evenly and cylinders are fairly evenly steamed. No cold spots it seems. I know the Garratt's made by Aster had a problem with getting hot steam to the cylinders evenly.Thanks Bob
Not sure what you mean about "good distribution considering the size of the boiler" Did you mean tell me or to me
