John, mine came with the giant burner that I will now show in the photo.

It really has a burner that does fit into the category of heating any type of boiler

John, it's too much! I guess in the 70's they did not calculate too well what they used such a powerful burner, it impresses on the fly.

The smoke box of the D20 is modified to house that gossip, comes from the tip of the smoke box and comes out from behind the chimney housing, with 70 degree alcohol behaves as seen in the video, the steam pressure is keeps always stable with a tendency to rise until it opens the safety valve.

This is not exactly the video that John asked me (I have to prepare it a little better), but I wanted to show how little the mosquito of the steam has managed to make a dent in me, the one that consumes the rest of the mortals who populate the forum.

But I'm tough, and I only have "that" since November.

Wow Mr Nacho. You have been buying a lot! Some nice engines there. The SEL major is in lovely condition. All that is missing is a lovely D455...

And those that are still to come (in the future you never know ...). John, that Major has the safety valve in a state that I do not trust and asked Kevin to replace it and the level plug, which neither had already.

And in 1530 there is still a lot to do, I want to find some washers to put between the flywheel motor and smoke box so that it does not rub directly on the smoke box, but I am not able to find measures of about 9mm external diameter and 3, 3mm internal
