Bought my 2-4-2 Mimi used and was wondering if any particular maintenance would be beneficial? It has servos making it more difficult to remove the burner so I want it to be something I should do before going in and then need to know the ins and outs of what to do while in there. Also, is there anywhere else that should need servicing? Thanks for any thoughts on this. Jim

maintenance would be beneficial?
Many folk oil the moving parts every time they run - I personally oil them about once a year! (Turbine oil, not 3-in-1. Or synthetic oil.)

Obviously refresh the steam oil after or before each run. [I do it after, so the loco is ready to go. Others do it before. Either case is fine, but make it a ritual so you don't forget.]

And that's it, until something stops working, at which point you can many photos and post them here. Someone will have had the same problem!
