"I just received my cylinder casting and could not be happier. Roger did an excellent job of implementing core boxes with gentle contours for the exhaust, which to me, will help make this locomotive into one heck of a runner. There are well thought out provisions made for a smooth routing of the exhaust steam. One of the most power robbing mistakes commonly made in steam, regardless of the size of the engine, is to restrict the inlet and exhaust passages with small diameter steam passages. Exhaust steam must be released with minimal resistance as any back pressure requires energy from the power stroke to push it out of the cylinder. This cylinder design has me very impressed." - M.T., Marysville, OH

"I received the cylinder casting set yesterday. WOW! The castings are just excellent! Fantastic castings; I couldn't be more pleased! They are definitely worth every penny! Thank you so much! I'm taking them to our central Illinois live steam meet today to show everyone." - J.R., Springfield, IL

"Everyone who saw them was impressed with how they were cast exactly like the real cylinder castings for full size locomotives." - J.R., Springfield, IL

"Thanks so much for the high quality cylinder castings. Your foundry did a great job and I can't believe the size of the ports. It will certainly be a free breather." - K.H., Elkton, VA
