Seems pretty premature when you've never seen it run??

If it has straight air (no trainline) it may not be wise to run it on any tourist service. Not sure if it would meet FRA requirements either.

Only thing I can comment on FRA easily, is that EVERYTHING has to work. One burned out bulb you don't think you need is a non-complying part.

Today was a great day. We installed the redesigned rear engine supports, and when we cranked them up, the cracks on the bell housing closed! I will still talk to Lock n Stitch to see if they can come here to close the cracks permanently.
Our last task was to turn the engine over manually from the rear of the generator, which we did. It did not turn easily, but we figure with 6 pistons and the generator rotor, it did take some doing.
