I took Liza Jane back to SCMES today for another run.

I am happy to report that it was a great success.

The fixes that I have made since the steam test to both the lubricator and the injector have both worked and the loco ran faultlessly for 3 hours.

Quite a few club members had a drive including young Jack and she even took a couple of passengers. She had many admiring comments. The photos and video here show Jon Alldridge (one of our engine driving instructors) driving and Ray Gilbert having a ride.

She is now safely back home, WD40 on her moving parts and steam oil in the cylinders. I will clean her properly when she has completely cooled down. It might be a while now until I can run her again but we shall see. I hope that the next time she is run my wife, Liz, after whom she is named will come and have a go too.

Here is a link to a short video on YouTube.
