First Steam-up of the Plant
« on: March 31, 2021, 07:03:49 pm »
I fired the new boiler for the first time. Had steam in about 10 minutes. One small leak in a water pipe fitting that needed to be tightened. Injector and hand pump worked fine.

I have built several steam engines and can use any of them. That is why I have not mounted an engine on the board but can pipe from the turret valve to the engine sitting on a table.

A perfect standalone set up for "orphan" engines.

Very well done Brad!
