Railroad workers billycan in action
My good friend Sticks65 sent me this review he did on a Railroad worker Billy can. I kinda like it and the little stove he used to do the testing. Im gonna have to try and make the stove sometime.
Check it out, I hope you like the pictures.

Railroad workers billycan in action;
Well I only ordered my Billycan on Friday and got it first thing this morning
I had some gardening to do today so i thought may as well cook outside and give my can a little test run.
The first thing i did before i tested it outside was to boil some water on the kitchen hob which seemed to boil in just a few minutes.
Then i went out side and got my fire box going using birch paper bark and my fire steel while i got on with a little gardening
By the time i had pruned a couple of bushes the fire box was ready to cook on so i put some baked beans in the can and put them on the fire box.
Didn't take long for the beans to heat up but one thing i noticed is that they warmed up at a good rate and did not burn.
While i was eating my beans i put some water in the billy cup and put this on to boil which only took a minute or two,the cup was hot but that was not a problem as i take rigger gloves when i go camping and buy the time i was ready for a drink the cup had cooled enough.
All in all im very pleased with this billy can,it is easy to use and easy to clean.
Its a nice size [holds 1 3/2 pints] you do need a long spoon which was not a problem because i had one
The spoon i used,its an eating spoon and coffee spoon
