    Thanks John,

    It's being reassembled after painting at the moment. Tender complete but still fiddling with the pipework on the loco.

    Ian.

    John,

    Can the drivers slip if the chassis meets something like a buffer stop? If not you might find that there is a danger of burning out the motor if the loco is stopped for any reason when under power, or coupled up to a load which is too heavy for it. A method of adding ballast to a loco I have used in the past is to set the chassis turning and slipping and monitoring the current then adding the ballast until the current is the recommended maximum for the motor - and, if I remember correctly, the maximum running current for a coreless motor is quite a lot less than its stall current.

    Jim.

    It looks pretty good, but the brass boiler fittings will make a world of difference.
