Hi I am wanting to start out in model steam engines and are wondering how much it would cost to build a boiler for a 3 1/2 inch locomotive. At the moment I am looking at a moutaineer steam locomotive and are wondering what size boiler it would need and how much it would cost?
I'm building my first boiler for my first project, a Stuart 10V. I have built a displacement lubricator for it and i'm wondering if this will be effective if I "superheat" the steam? Thinking dryer steam will displace less oil from the lubricator? Rudy
