Steam Plant is Finally Finished
« on: July 31, 2022, 03:43:30 pm »
I have made all my changes. Steam pipes are lagged so I have less of a chance to burn myself. The Worthington steam pump fits nicely next to the boiler. Hand pump works well too. I am ready to take it to the engine shows after the Wednesday hydro of the boiler. First show in two weeks.

 Really, really nice Brad, and the little scale bucket really stands out as a nice touch. I hope you can post some videos!

Remember, the steam that blows the whistle will never turn the wheel. Actually I forgot to blow the whistle.

Exceptional work there, Brad! The steam pump is a classic, and fun to watch.

I've got a 504 kit that I will put together someday. Thanks for the video!

Love all the valves and fittings! I have been thinking through how to make a boiler for running many engines, what kind of tubing is that between the plant and the engine?
