1929 Steam Wagon

The Steam Wagon’s first run was at Crossness Pumping Station’s Engineering open day, in June 2014. Always a good event and this year it gave me a chance to fire up the old 1929 virtual boiler steam engine, currently fitted to the Steam Wagon model from the 1929 steam engine manual. See HERE. It also gave us the opportunity to make a short video using Tim’s nice new video camera [Ed: actually it was my old one!]. As you can see in the video it ran very well and for about 15 minutes on a full tank of meths. Tim is now recovering in the local hospital after being run over at the end of filming.
