New steam plant aquisition

Had the good fortune to obtain a very nice steam plant that I got from a forum member here. He did a great job putting it all together AAAA++++!

I'm not sure just what I'll end up doing with it as yet, but at minimum it will be a sterling operating display.

Here are a few photos I just took of the set up that I'd like to share!

Well shiver me timbers mate....

Last night I was fooling around in the Shipyard (shop)
and since I had my planned steam plant out of
the the Hartman "Diana" launch I've been working on,
I set the new steam plant in just to see how it would fit.
I was pleasantly surprised to see that the fit was really good!

The other pic is of the MacSteam/PMR 8 set up in the launch.
I'm not sure what I'll do at this point....
not sure I am ready to build another "Diana" for one of the plants,
since I've got a Krick "Victoria" kit waiting to be built.

The third pic is of my "Diana" launch "Cynthia Anne" in a
nearly finished state, but still needing steam
plant bugs to be worked out.

I have a question, if I went with the Graham TVR1A
would I need to add a steam control valve and second servo
in addition to the one for forward and reverse?
The reason I originally went with the PMR 8
was because of the single control.
