I am starting this thread because I got off-topic on the Subcompact thread about "what you did with you John Deere today".
On the subject of model railroads (where I use my 1026R with front end loader to level the grade for the track), I run live steam locomotive models.
This is not to be confused with electric motor powered models that look like the prototype steam engines.
My previous videos and photos may have been deceptive in that I did not "take off the lid" to display the inner details of a live steam model locomotive. To correct this deficiency, I am posting these photos to show that in fact, this model locomotive is powered by butane, which boils the water which creates the steam pressure (about 40 psi) which runs the locomotive.
No track power, no batteries, no smoke and mirrors (well maybe a little bit of smoke). Just live steam.
That's probably more than you wanted to know about the "Dark Side" of G-gauge model railroading.
Live steam G-gauge is a very small percentage of the total G-gauge model train market.
