The paper under the boiler strap may be there to keep the boiler from rotating while running. I've read where the 85's were notorious for doing that.

That little beauty looks to have a minimum of run time on it.

Don't see those hardly ever!

Is there a theme or are you just randomly selecting an engine?

Are these new pictures or are you using pictures from your files?

I’ve heard and experienced the rotating boilers and Bruce has confirmed it. Funny that they couldn’t cut a rectangular gasket for under the strap, but I guess that’s Jensen using what’s on hand :D

No theme, other than arrivals from the past two years or a select few that I kept from storing away. If I get real ambitious I may dig a tub out and find some neat stuff… some engines may have been seen before, but all the pictures will be new.

It didn’t last too long on eBay with its low-ish BIN ;)
