    The traction engine was started abot 7 yrs ago,but the others have come along in the last 3 yrs,I never get enough shop time,especially this cold weather.
    When I have finished the clock I intend to make Stews overcrank engine,it will make a change.
    Thank you all for your kind comments.It makes it worthwhile to read them from people who know what they are talking about.

    Question from a model engine newby, what kind of engine is the one shown above and are there any plans available?

    This looks outstanding, love the overall look and the workmanship, would like to build something like this myself someday.

    This is a paddle steamer engine designed by E.T.Westbury,I believe the plans are available on here,but Reeves do castings and plans,I used cast iron round to make the cylinders,steam chests and covers.

    The cast iron came from RDG tools,nice stuff too, a bit dirty to machine.
    Of course i dont mind the questions,thats what the forum is all about,helping others.

    Nice and nice .... Thm:

    What scale (length) is the beam engine?
    We're building 10 of them over on team builders. We've starting shipping parts last week, hope to send/receive more this week.


    Thanks,

    Pat H.

    Shucks, Don! I thought you were in the US. RDG won't work for me, shipping would be a killer.
