Restoring Live Steam

Click on these links to read about completed projects or work in progress that involve live steam engines or boilers.  Size wise I am happy to deal with models up to 5″ gauge / 3″ scale.

Please note that although I can undertake work on a boiler and prepare it for the hydraulic and steam tests I cannot issue a valid Certificate.  To obtain a valid certificate you would need to join either my or your local Model Engineering Club.
