Damper lever for manual
In 2015 we introduced a new great
looking damper lever for manual operated locos that allows for the same
easy control of the damper as in R/C locos. It allows for running the
loco fully "on the damper", just as a gas-fired loco "on the gas".
The lever - shown damper open - can be
reached easily through the left opening in the cab
The clever thing is that the door clicks into the damper lever. And so
the damper lever will adjust how much the door will be cracked open to
control the heat of the coal fire during running. At the
same time - to open the door fully - the door clicks out of the lever
easily to shovel coal on the fire. Watch the manual damper
