There is a fascination about the simple oscillating steam engine which attracts even the builders of true-scale, exact to prototype quadruple expansion marine engines! It may be their sheer simplicity of mechanism, it may be memories of childhood days when `Father Christmas' put on in the stocking, or may be just the fun of seeing the machine work. This book describes the making of four such models.
The author built all four and apart from the last, all have been featured in articles in the Model Engineer and elsewhere.
Designs and methods of construction are clearly detailed, with instructions that even a beginner will be able to follow.
