My first steam
« on: June 24, 2020, 11:09:24 am »
Still waiting for the boiler to be stocked for the CMS mill engine, and milling tools to proceed with the main job, the Senior engine  ;)

Got impatient and bought this off Ebay so i could try some steam  ;D

Loose and rattly sounds pretty good to me. Nice runner, nice video.

Hi Nick,

I have a wife, there is no shelf space  ;D

I do see their is a sad looking Stuart Victoria steam plant for sale, the engine looks like a disaster zone but i couldn't buy the unmachined kit and boiler for that price so seriously considering it for a project.
