I will need to make a chuff pipe to fit to my new arrival.
If its a single pipe exhaust it shouldn't be too difficult.

Why do you need to make a chuff pipe?

It should have one already and the Regner 'chuff' is not too bad.

BTW I haven't managed to do anymore with this project at the moment due to the big move but it will be this first item out in the 'new' place.

You are absolutely right Carl. Smile
Chuff pipe fitted as standard.

I have had the drawings e mailed to me and also a very detailed account of set up and running plus many hints from the seller.

Whilst waiting for the paint to dry on another steam project I did a bit more to this Hanna.

In fact a lot more and even fired it up for the first time.

Despite several steam leaks around my plumbing and a blocked gas jet it did actually run and reasonably smoothly for a first run.

I've been plodding on slowly with this project in an effort to have another steam engine available and working in time for RailExpo in November.

I hadn't fully realised that it's been about 18 months since I started this with a house move in between!

A couple more steam ups since the leaks were fixed and scalded my hand.

As I intend to keep this manual I needed to fabricate a reversing lever which Regner do not supply.



I didn't want to drill any more holes in the footplate so I made a bar and bracket to fit existing holes.



The link between the lever and turret valve was made with 3mm x 1.5mm brass strip.

Well the main work is now complete. Just small details and accessories to fit such as lamps.





The rear brass cab rails from footplate to roof were not in the kit supplied so were made ' la maison'. It looked a bit too open without them. The extended roof was a special accessory supplied to go with the tender.



And here coupled to the tender that I built from kit last year!
Of course there are no metre gauge 020 (0-4-0)s that I know of in France but then then it looks okay to me and perhaps there should be.






I will have to change the black notice on the tender as it is in German. study





And here, Hanna and her sister.....Very Happy





All in all this was a delghtful kit to put together after all these years... Sleep
Unfortunately the kit is no longer in production by Regner but I am going to send them some pics and ask if they will produce at least a black chassis kit/boiler kit with a tall chimney.
Better still a 030 (0-6-0) chassis.

It looks great, Carl. I like it a lot.

BTW,


I know it hasn't a tender, but it is a French meter gauge 020 (and it has a sister, too).

Ah...That's the Baie de la Somme again Bill.

Can never get enough of that place!

The 020 is a Corpet. And I've got a feeling the Vivarais had one of these as well once.

Still....If anyone can find a pic of a 020 with a tender I will be pleased.

It's not at Vivarais, but this looks like another relative:
