Nice model!

What are the two items (look like cans) between the boiler and the engine? I've never seen something like this.

Very nice setup!


Looks like a twin firetube boiler? Butane fired? Nice!

I am sure Jin will confirm, but looking on top of the steam plant with the boiler to the right.....

1. the upper tank is a water make up reservoir for boiler feed....you can see on the tank end facing the engine, a sight glass is evident
2. this feeds the electric driven piston boiler feed pump [in the video, the sound of the eccentric driven pump is audible]
3. the lower tank is an oily steam condenser......the exhaust tubing from thee engine is clearly evident
4. the gas supply from a disposable tank [shown in the first image buy not connected] ....via the flexible stainless steel braided hose & EN series adapter
5. the boiler has two gas burners which are supplied via the gas regulator
6. we also see a quartz tubed visual steam oil engine lubricator  :ThumbsUp:.....[I believe these are a true advantage]

Very nice and a truly complete steam plant [with work in progress] Jin   :cheers:
As a preference, I find that having all sub components hard fixed to the one common base plate is again, a true advantage

Looks nice and very well made, but the dimensions given are obviously wrong, cm instead of mm ?
the steam pipe for intake is not lagged, whereas the pipe for the pressure gauge is covered with insulating cord, I would have made the opposite...

Some very nice parts / assemblies here  :ThumbsUp: - but I do not get the measurements :

In my youth the term MM equals Mega Mega (upper case letters are positive exponent and lower case are negative exponent), so I'm guessing millimetres .... but 60 x 22 millimetres is a very small engine - so maybe Zephyrin got it right (cm.) ?
