Looks fantastic!

Will your superheater be radiant type or convection? Also do you envisage any issues with slide valve lubrication at the higher temperatures?

because of the design of the Derr boiler it will be radiant type, and be located on the bottom of the tubes. as for lube oil I have a displacement type of oilier.

because I increased the size and weight of the car, my water usage has gone up to around 1.5 - 2.0 gal/mile. After talking to some Stanley guys  they said it was because I was not running with a super heater. The car pressure is set for 245 psi which gives 404 degs F the super heater will increase the temp of the steam to 600 degs f
