0-4-0 Instructions

Post by John Abbott » Wed Feb 22, 2017 2:34 am

I misplaced my instruction book for my Live Steam 0-4-0. I have the book for the Mikado so have general instructions.
Can someone give me the millimeters of oil and water recommended to use for run.

I am at the Live Steam meet at the Ridge live steamers in Central Florida. The Winter meet is this weekend. Come Join us.

Hi John,

Per the 0-4-0 User Manual:

Steam Oil
4 ml steam oil (Oil reservoir is filled in stages, and redone at least every second run.)

Boiler Water
240 ml distilled water in an empty boiler (Site glass should read at least 2/3rds full.)

If it ends up that you can't find your hard copy of the manual, pdf copies can be found online.

Have fun,
Dennis

Wow, John! I knew you had a live steam Mikado, but I didn't know you had the switcher too!!!

Well, things happen. I now only have a runable 0-4-0. The Mikado fell off the track (about 4' into dirt). I believe irreparable damage. Maybe good for some parts. - John

Wished I'd heard about this earlier as I was in Orlando running with some guys that invited me to come to run this past weekend. Ran my Mike and also my EBT. Big track about 800 ft. Later RJD
