      Easter morning steam up of LGB/Aster Frank S

      Nice sunny morning before the snow storm moves in this afternoon. So the lines new Frank S is out with the special after some mods to the exhaust set up The gunk tank was removed, the exhaust extended up near the top of the chimney with a home brew chuff pipe. Railway has settled a bit over the winter creating a bit of a grade just before the depot. Have to shim up that side once the ground firms up a bit. Anyways, Happy Easter!

      I've been running one of these for several months now, after it had been a "shelf queen" for probably ten or more years.  Lately, though, the fire doesn't stay lit.  I thought it was just low on fuel, but that doesn't seem to be the case.  Any suggestions of the problem and how to get it running like new?

      If it has been running well and everything else is OK the jet is probably clogged.

      Blow backward through the jet with butane gas.
