    Hi Stephen,
    I am giving some serious thought to a build log? The answer to your question is yes that is the condenser (separator,) and in another life it used to be the foot-rail in a defunct spit and sawdust pub, a friend rescued a piece for me. The globe valve you can see is on the outlet going to the chimney, the low down tapping for emptying also has a globe valve. By closing the exhaust valve and opening the emptying valve which has a tapping over the side, you can use the engines exhaust and boiler pressure to empty the condenser. This is something I have adopted from somewhere and use on all of my steam plants, along with the bypass valve idea to blow the pipes before steaming the engine. How is FORMIDABLE LT 53 doing? Regards,Gary.

    Hi Gary,

    Very neat looking layout, funny how a relatively large hull fills up.
    I am guessing that the large brass coloured cylinder is a separator if it is I don't understand the plumbing to a globe valve.

    How about a build log then?

    Cheers,
    Stephen.

    If it looks right it probably is.

    Martin, that is a very good question, and I am afraid the answer is as yet I have never quite managed to get around to writing one. Looking on the bright side I do have the photographs ready and waiting, and just need to get around to writing the script. Regards Gary.

    Martin, I think I have now decided where everything should be, having shuffled everything around a few times, which means having to make up new pipe-work every time. It is a strange non-conventional layout, with the gas canister at the front and the gas boiler burner at the opposite end with a distance of 26" between the two. Regards, Gary.
