    Yes my PC was also fine no problems whatsoever, very interesting engines there, not being up on steam engine history when did stevenson come along in all this developement, as i believe he came up with some great improvements in steam engine design, or was his work and life much later in time!

    There were multiple written articals some years ago in I think Engineering in Miniture magazine about each of those working models and at the end of the series an artical showing how he designed and built his brick making machine. That was one hell of an effort by one person. Nice to see those models haven't faded into obscurity.
