    Refurbishing the chassis of a model Bowman 300 steam locomotive.

    Another interesting posting. Thank you Tony. I also found it a little nostalgic, though my first "Steam engine" was an old Mamod, my mother was afraid we would electrocute ourselves with an electric train set! I wonder if she considered the dangers of steam and fire.:eek:

    American Flag Engine

    If the flag was OK on GHWBush's train, it sure fits here! Beautiful running engine, beautifully painted. As a Disabled American Vet. I love to see Old Glory, my wife has her model horses many with the flag on them all over the house. Nuff said!! Let's get back to "modeling and sharing" ...

    Stuart No 4 Engine

    Nice work! Enjoying your explanations, great photos. I completed a #4 some years back, someone else had started it, screwed up and quit. My biggest nightmare was making new bearing blocks from scratch. It is monster, takes way too much steam for my little boiler.

    need help with steam engine choices

    The steel is 12L14 (not 12L10 sorry for the error) - either way it has multiple uses, is fairly cheap and easy to mill. I have used it for many Steam engine components. It finishes quite nicely. I have made cylinders, shafts and other components, even used it for a very small crankshaft. You...

    Horsepower pony or clydesdale horses

    The difference between a horse and a pony is determined by the height at the withers. Ponies must be less than 14 hands. A hand equals 4 inches. I have seen two horse hitches that could routinely out-pull a modern tractor. That is 2 horse power versus 40 or 50!
