I just ran across this book on-line and thought that I'd pass it along. Every Boy His Own Manufacturer; published in 1872 https://archive.org/details/everyboyhisownma00roor Pages 28-32 "How to make an oscillating engine." Pages 32-53 "How to make a working model of a locomotive." Pages 54-57 "How to make a model steamboat." Pages 58-60 "To make a steam cylinder." The Locomotive and the Steamboat projects are more refined and look like they will work, unlike those featured in Beeton' Boys' Annual in 1869.
