When not wanting to run live steam and all my battery converted models need charged, what is one to do when you want to run trains? You wind them up of coarse. Here is my nice old Bassett-Lowke gauge one 112 tank with clockwork drive. Got this in partial trade for one of the live steamers I was selling. Was heavily covered in smoker residue, even the main spring was yellow, along with the rods and bodywork. Some work and lots of PB Blaster and compressed air to flush out the spring and drive. I am getting almost 2 laps of the railway now, was about 1.5 laps when I shot the video. So you can wind it up and have it return to the starting station. Just as BL wanted. A railway that can be worked with no electricity needed, with live steam and clockwork drives.
