Great design interesting position of the flyball governor attached to the steam piping and not the frame
There are two that i've seen locally, one at the New England Wireless & Steam Museum in Rhode Island and one at The Connecticut Antique Machinery Association. Have you done any of the steam chest design yet looking for how you are going to porting of the intake and exhaust
Good job on the drawings

Thank you for posting your work, I am a big fan of the Green Improved automatic cut off engines and will be following your progress.  The Green engine is a complicated engine but well worth the effort to model.  Did you know that Nathan Green actually worked for George Corliss for a short time when Nathan began his engineering career?

Your foundation design is excellent, very much like a real engine would be installed, however I have not seen anyone reproduce it for a model.  A great approach.

Can you give us some more information on the drawings you used for reference when you made your drawings?  Is this a model of an existing engine?

Denis, thank you for your support.
I am sending photos from which I took inspiration. Yes I know about Corliss, I used to build a model. With Corliss, the Greenee engine was on trial

I LOVE it, a formed and cast concrete base for an engine.  Nice work.
