Ok here are the last ones from today.

The plan is to make the train run before Christmas.
I have to make a new fire box self because the parts of the old bing train are almost not to find enymore.

Going to the hobby shop in the end of the week to have the parts that i need.

Hope i am going to make it, otherwise it is going to be next year.

If it is going to run i am going to start it outside because i am to scared to have fire inside the house.

I have some rail left to try it outside.

Keep you all up to date.

Beautiful steam train you got!

I think you will find the correct burner burns alcohol spirits and not esbit.

Over here denatured alcohol is readily available in a hardware store.

Thanks Gil,

You are right it needs to have a alcohol burner.

I have talked with many people that know a lot about a old Steam toy trains and also went with the bing to a coople of hobby shops.
Some told me they never have seen one before.
And lots of people where starring with huge eyes to it.

Also found out that if you have missing parts on an original bing train then they are almost not to find enymore.

So the next days we are going to try to make a burner self.
I not sure it is going to work but i am going to give it a try.

So this chapter is called : making a Bing Steam Locomotive burner.


What we are going to need is a piece of tin brass blade arround 8 by 8 feet/ 20 cm.

2 brass pipes.
One 1/4 inch and one 1/8 inch inside

And an sock of cotton what they used in the old Grandmother cookerange lights.

More to come.

Worked another hour on the locomotive today.

Was forget to say yesterday that i have taken 1 mm thicknes for the tin brass plate.

Have taken measurments from the train to make the fuel tank.

The wick tubes must be made arround 26/27 mm high.

So i am going to make the fuel tank arround 23/24 high so the fuel can not role out of the tubes/burners.

Going to use the old workmate to help me.

Have cut out the brass parts and bend them in possition to make the tank model.

New updates for today.


First picture.

You can see the burners placed on the mother fuel pipe.

Picture 2 the Air intake and fill plug for on top of the tank.

On picture 3 and 4 you can see the lathe working from me today to make the Air intake.


Tomorrow we are going to solder the parts in each others.

Ok some very huge updates today


And here is she is Rata tata : the new and missing burner for the Bing Locomotive !.

We had to silver solder it because this burner coult become very hot in and under that locomotive.
The silver solder i dit not do self but went to a specialist.
The front work i have done self.

The friend of mine that have done the silver solder told me that i have to cook and boil it to take the dirt and sand from the solder work out as you can see on picture 3 and 4.

More to come.

More new updates today


The locomotive had some heavy demage on the front section.

We made an new front hup for the left side as you can see on picture 1 and 2

We also made 2 wheels for for the back side of the coal tender because it was missing them.

Went for searching on the internet but only found a coople for 50 bucks each.
So we dit not buy them and made a coople with my friend.
They are not original Bing because they have round holes in it but its almost not see when its on the rail.


Wil paint only the little/smal flat front part between the hups of the train tonight with the new hup to take the demage away and clean the train with a little polish to the dirty chrome parts.
