Dear All

We have been testing a 1. series Aster Big Boy # 4002 this week. It ran perfect out of its crate.
The power is still impressive. (see video)

Regards
David

PS: if some one could make an imbedded youtube I would be happy.

Because David asked someone to embed it for him Gary. Isn't that enough reason.

David, was that the first time the engine had been run?
Sometimmes I wish that I had not sold my Big Boy but then I know I can still watch the videos of it and not have to lug it around.
Challenger has been good substitute for me.

Gentlemen

Did any of you that tried to embed the YouTube video. Actually take the time to read the HTML iframe code[/b] provided by YouTube, when you couldn't get it to work???


i.e. specifically the URL value for the iframe tag's src=""[/b] attribute.

When was the last time you saw a URL begin with //[/b] ? Where's the http:[/b] ?????

Never have had any trouble before Steve. I just am not as technicle as you I guess. They must have changed something recently.

BTW where is the HTML iframe code and what is src Okay I went to Google and got my explanation. Thanks for your help.

The HTML iframe code is the text that you copy from the YouTube text box and paste into the MLS editor.

I understand that Gary, but when we try to post as many Train videos as some of us do, we like to understand why some things work that are PC related. It just seems to be easier to have the videos embeded so as not to have to leave MLS site to do so.

Dear All

Thanks for imbedding the link. - I will look at the "how to pages" next time.

Art: The engine ran 9 year ago. It has run about 9-19 hours in total. To my luck it was soaked in a good oil and no-thing had dried out, so all parts could move, and it was just a question of filling in Water and gas and then start up the engine.
Im quite impressed of the quality. Think that this is a 1980 model! The running gear is quite well made. (much better than my other ´80 models) I understand why you some times thinks your engine should not go.
Im not into American engines myself, but the BB is special. - When its stands still it looks rather "ugly", but when it moves it is so.... im out of Words...
All in all it is a fantastic engine.
