This is my first steam locomotive and have found a 3 1/2 inch gauge green arrow I need a boiler made for it because I don't trust my skills in that but will be doing everything else any advice would be appreciated.
A boiler might seem complicated but it really isn't and at 3 1/2 inch gauge everything is relatively easy to handle. It's just about having the right advice and maybe a little help with heating etc but there's nothing really complicated. My first boiler was a 3 1/2 inch Hall and I did nearly everything on my own with some help when doing the final assembly. It's not the prettiest boiler but it works and it gave me the confidence to tackle a 5 inch boiler next. Ian
Hi bmk If you have the Photobucket 'fix' for your browser then you might find something useful in my old boiler build thread 'Brit Progress:Boiler Plates'. Making the combustion chamber boiler was quite straightforward, but I screwed up on the final heat and am now the proud owner of a TIG welded boiler from Steam Technology... BTW welcome! John
