Hi Folks
Matthew Foster in Japan has just posted a video of his coal fired Roundhouse Billy (Riverdale I think) which has now been fitted with an SSP Slomo. He reports that he is absolutely delighted with the result and you can see why in the video. As he is not a member here he asked me to post it for you to see.

The Slomo currently fits Katie and Billy type locos without any axle driven pumps (the Slomo needs the space) and the Lady Anne version should be ready this Summer.
Cheers
Chris

Very nice
Plenty of pressure and great control
Attractive line too: I could almost smell the smoke

Wow, another marvellous demo and very atmospheric. And a Japanese-themed railway to add to the mix - great!

Alan - here is a photo of the Slomo fitted to my Roundhouse Katie that appeared in a recent Summerlands Video. As you can see it fits between the axles of the 0-4-0 locos. I gather that there will be one for a Lady Anne this Summer as well as ones for the Accucraft Countess and K-28!

You can find the info on www.smallsteamperformance.com.au  and also there is quite a lot on my website (even though I am just a customer!).
Cheers

I think these devices really revolutionise live steam, giving the impression of mass that is often all to lacking. Its often a case of beautiful railway and loco, but startled rabbit dynamics.

These change everything- coal too- amazing!
