The latest status of the Burrell traction engine, you can find links to all of the posts on the build on the Miniature Traction Engine page.
Here though is a brief youtube showing me moving it around and some stills of the engine to date.
The firebox door opens and took me a little while to get right and a balance between scale and working.
Not sure how many smokebox doors and etched nameplates I made, somewhere between 10 and 20 before I got to this point.
Please don’t ask the total number of hours taken so far, it will be a huge number. I’m hoping to turn this into a set of plans in the future. That is if you are interested (post comments below).
