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.

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.

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.
