'VULCAN' BEAM ENGINE

'VULCAN' BEAM ENGINE

The "Vulcan" Beam Engine cir. 1830. This real old timer amongst beam engines , evokes the era of the early historic steam engine, when they were becoming self-contained all metal constructions. This engine is representative of that early transition from the use of wooden beams, and the engine structure being part of the engine house.
A straight forward engine to build yet producing an attractive and interesting model which can be up and ready for steaming quite quickly for the experienced. It is also covered by a constructional series in The Model Engineer for those who may need a little help. And the model is thus ideal for up and coming modellers.
Cylinder 7/8" Bore x 2 1/4" Stroke - Base 10 1/4" x 5 1/8" - Flywheel 8 3/8" x dia.

Constructional series started in the Model Engineer 21st October, 1954.
