Excellent video, thank you.

Some thoughts:

There are so many places on those locos that allow steam and water to escape. Seems they waste so much, it's a wonder they have enough to get anywhere! I realize 25,000 gallons is a lot of water, but they allow a lot to escape!

At times the drivers of 4014 are in sync, other times they are out. Is this caused by normal slippage, or are the wheels different diameters?

Lots of oil on the moving parts. Is that normal for the automatic oilers, or are there packings that need attention?

at knotts berry farm in southern ca they have a narrow gauge steam loco, after every run around the park they are oiling the moving parts. having watched this for many years I can say that running steam locos are a messy, dirty operation. imo, had it not been for the invention of the diesel electric engine, steam would have go away anyway as they are not good for the environment, with all the leaking they do.
