So, back in October 2018 I decided I wanted to build a working steam engine after an accident took away some of my other hobbies.

So, I visited the Stuart Models HQ/shop near where I grew up, and left with a Stuart 10V castings Kit... (I wanted the Twin Victoria, but was advised that that is a much more technical kit, and probably beyond a first build.)

So, roll the clock forward a few months, I got the engine running, albeit noisily by about February this year, where it sat on a shelf and didnt move whilst I got a few other things in order.

The last week I've been tidying it up, replacing a few parts with better engineered ones, preparing it for painting, and planning mounting it to a board, as I'm showcasing it at a fair this weekend, which will be interesting. Hopefully it will run for the day...

Anyway, I'll get some of the hundreds of photos uploaded once I have figured that bit out.

Thanks for reading,

Sounds great! I've just taken delivery of an S50.... first real build. I'll probably get started around October though
