this engine is already so long that I was having trouble getting into one picture. this is the best that I could do to capture the entire frame and smokebox.

last pic for now. the scratch built low smoke stack. BTW, Dunkin makes almost all of his live steamers from scratch. Quite an accomplishment!!

That's just awesome. Does he have a target date for the first fire? Looks like it is getting close.

   Henry,
 
   sorry that I did'nt respond sooner to your question. I really don't know when dunkin plans on installing the boiler. I do know that he has both sets of valve gear working smoothly together and he is working on the flexible steam feeds and exhaust lines for both sets of cylinders. The boiler has been pressure tested and is OK. But I don't know what his time table is for final assembly and test running on steam.

Just a little information about Dunkin Herring's 'A'. I spoke to him a few nights ago. And I also received a fuzzy picture from Ray Heaton of Dunkin's 'A'.  
 
   The BIG boiler is resting on the frame. It quite impressive. Even seen in a not so good quality pic. We are hoping that he brings it to the Un-Meet in Feb.

This is a really crappy picture. But, I figured that many real enthusiasts here would appreciate the work and dedication involved in building such an engine. BTW, according to my most recent conversation with Dunkin, he has the entire boiler jacket on and most of the steel plate cab built. Oh, the boiler, minus smoke box is 550 lbs.

   I had a nice conversation with Dunkin Herring last evening. He informed that he has the complete steel plagte cab finished on the "A". Plus all of the functional and the decorative plumbing has been put on the engine.  
 
   He feels confident that it will be at the 2012 All Steam Un-Meet at the Buckingham Central RR this winter. I forgot to ask if the "A" will be running on steam or only air tested and displayed.

   Friends and other interested folks,
 
   I received another e-mail photo from Ray H (SteamHeaton) of Dunkins 'A'. its outside of his shop on a short piece of elevated trackage. He had just painted the boiler jacket.  
 
(Henry, some help please with the size of the pic. I would appreciate the help)

(thank you Henry for resizeing the pic)
 
the size of this engine is a little deceiving in this pic. If my memory serves me, it is just one foot shorter than my entire Atlantic, which is nine feet long. Locomotive and tender. this latest creation of dunkins is eight feet long. locomotive only. by what he told me is a very recent conversation, he feel s that he will bring it to the 2013 Un-Meet for show and tell.

Here's a recent photo of Dunkin's A at the Canton track in Georgia.  Dunkin was running the engine on compressed air to test its tracking.  Just fits on the turntable!(Photo by Rich Dean).
