As Rog posted above, the controller is a nudge type. So i think it was three nudges to get ready to set off, then one nudge after 5seconds. The engine would start at a low pace, then as it got running a second nudge would allow full pressure to the cylinders, (voltage to the boiler). Another nudge in the opposite direction would slow the loco, and it would coast, another nudge would cut the steam power. Which brought it to a stop fairly quick. All the time the safety valve was farting away. Two nudges in the reverse position would cut boiler/steam production.martstb wrote: they certainly look nice Jon, however they sound fairly difficult to get to run
correctly for a novice, as the boilers must be small I can see how they would
easily go over pressure and run dry, certainly a challenge and asborbing type
of steam to get into though
