Hi Lorenz,

Thank you.  The smoke smells so nice, how could anyone complain.  It's actually quite quiet, the exhaust is very quiet, there's a lot of mechanical noise.  The tank lasts about 15 minutes, but I was topping it up during the run after five or ten minutes.

Best wishes,
Dave

Had a great run today.  The loco ran for an hour, with topping-up the tank every 10 minutes.  It was run in reverse throughout.  The cooling fans ran for 70 minutes before the batteries started giving up.  I let the loco run out of fuel, and kept the fans on until the air was coming out cooler.  Yesterday I wrote up a "operating procedure" for the loco, as I found I had been missing some steps on previous runs:

               Lubricate final drive spur gears
               Fill gearbox with 10 mL of oil
               Pour fuel into rocker cover
               Lubricate all running gear
               Charge batteries after the run
