- The coal-fired Amy is easy to drive: you can run
without attending coal or water for up to 20-24 minutes (a gas-fired
locomotive runs under similar conditions 20-25 minutes). The
boiler contains all water for a full run. After a run coal and water is
up under steam. The advantages of this coal-firing system are explained
on the SPECIAL

- The stainless drop down fire
door has a built-in damper function to control the heat of the coal
fire and hence the steam pressure. For manual locos see details here.
- The Amy can be fitted with pressure telemetry and automated damper. See details here.
- Keeping the fire going
is easy due to a very deep and wide firebox. The stainless

- The water level of the boiler is easy to read because of
the long reading glass of the water gauge. Just like in a real loco,
the red-white or black-white background improves readability of
the reading glass even further.
- A black-white background is fitted as standard. Please let us
know should you want a red-white or no background. Take note that -
caused by heat of the boiler - over the years the white tends towards
beige. Spare black-white and red-white backgrounds come with your locomotive/kit.
- Your locomotive/kit comes with a Jacksons Superior bottle. Topping up is three times faster with less effort.

- The boiler dome is prepared for a Regner whistle
kit; adding a
whistle is very easy.
- Full Remote Control (regulator, reverser, whistle
AND damper) can be built in with the Amy RC fittings kit and
combo with servos. Receiver, rechargeables and all servos
except for the regulator servo are fully hidden away. The
above shows Amy with full Remote Control.
- The stainless steel laser-cut floor plate with cut-out for
the coal-fired boiler is already prepared for Remote Control.

- Amy can be built with our Amy
Coal-fired Boiler Kit and separately to be purchased Roundhouse kits and parts.
Alternatively you can convert an existing Lady Anne to
coal-firing with our Amy
Coal-fired Boiler Kit (read the related FAQs).

- Amy can be built with an open or closed
back panel. Conversions only with closed back panel.
- This is not a "build it in one evening" project. However
with care and patience can build
a coal-fired locomotive to be proud of. All painting is left to the
builder, minimal drilling and cutting is necessary. Only simple tools
are needed. Read the related FAQs.
