A great Brunel review! It is always a pleasure to hear from our customers, especially when they send us great feedback from so far away. Dave got in touch with us to let us know how the Mamod Brunel got the ‘steam’s up!” from across the pond. Thanks for taking the time to tell of your experience. Read below for the full Brunel review.
“I have been running your Brunel locomotive for some time now with compete satisfaction. At the National Summer Steam Up in California I ran the Brunel with 30 to 40 ponds psi., with about thirty minutes of run time and thought that was great.
I have just returned home from the International Small Scale Steam Up in Diamondhead, Mississippi. I usually bring two or three locomotives, but this year I only brought one, the Brunel and after running it for three days, I started steaming up the engine with a high burn rate, and then backing it down after blowing the safety, and found that the Brunel would run very well at just ten pounds psi. I was getting fifty + minutes with just adding water, no fuel.
Everyone loved it, and asks me what that thing was, I told them that it was a Mamod Brunel. I guess that no one had ever seen one up close before. I received the track hog award from a fellow live steamer , because of all the time Brunel was on the track.
I may be looking for another Brunel to made into a box cab locomotive.
Thank you for a great locomotive.
