Wilesco D3 powered drink mixer


another Video of my self-built drink mixing machine powered by Wilesco steam engine model D3. For drink mixing I can fill about 300ml liquid (and Ice) into the jam glass. I’ve just wrapped the steam tube with a hemp cord, that makes better isolation what helps the small machine for longer runtimes. (the last run was 13 min non stop. That is pretty long for the small D3!)

Take a journey with lots to see & experience on the wonderful West Somerset Railway from a whistle-stop at sleepy rural Stogumber to Minehead behind veteran ex S&DJR 7F 2-8-0 no.88.

Part 21 Build a Putt PuttPop Pop Steam Boat s18 powered test


Part 21 is Step 18, the step when you finally get to power test the engine! You don’t need a boat to power test the engine. You must prime the straws every time you use the engine. And the first time you use the engine you should slosh some water around inside the engine so the little droplets of water can flash to steam and get your engine going. To start out put the candle flame in the middle between the front and the back of the engine.

If there are steam powered locomotives, why aren’t there steam powered cars?

Doesn’t it make sense? Why, if they can make something that weighs MUCH more than a car run on steam, why can’t they make a car that runs on steam?

Unless steam powered locomotives don’t really run on steam?

This seems logical, right?

Steam powered train


While thee action was unfolding, I figured the steam whistle was for show and/or the highway crossing ahead. When a blast of air nearly knocked me over, I had seconds thoughts… about the wisdom of keeping one’s eye in the viewfinder – – – after setting up my tripod lots closer to that action than I should have!
