This project is NOT SUITABLE for CHILDREN.
This project has been developed by a well-respected and experienced model engineer and member of The Gauge 3 Society who wishes to publish under the pseudonym “Ginger”.
The objective is to produce an easy-to-follow plan for building a model live steam locomotive, using mainly commercially available parts and requiring the minimum of skills.
In regular instalments, the procedures will be laid out in convenient and easily understood format, including advice on where to obtain the parts required.
As part of this project, there is a Q&A section where questions may be asked of the author but please use this only to clarify points in relation to this project.
