Here are photos of three steam plants.
Two that I built in the last couple of years,
and one that I bought already assembled.

Right now they all operate and are display pieces,
but maybe one day I'll get around to putting them in suitable boats.
Although the the plant with the Stuart D10 with an appropriate prop
could probably push a canoe through the water.

File comment: This the plant I bought already assembled. I couldn't pass it up.
The engine is a Graham twin reversing, the 3.5" boiler (un-lagged) and lge gas tank are by MacSteam,
and everything is piped with PMR threaded pipe and fittings.
All components are mounted on a 1/8" brass base.

File comment: I built this plant which consists of a Stuart D10 twin engine with reversing gear.
The boiler is a MacSteam 4" horizontal and gas tank is also MacSteam.
I've since added a burner control valve and all is mounted on a brushed brass base.
