Lamppost Engine Running on Steam

For all of the issues in getting the small vertical boiler working it’s finally there and I got the Lamppost engine running on steam. This is the first time I’ve run one of my engines on steam and you can hear my excitement.

Not sure of the system efficiency though:

Methylated Spirits -> Heat -> Water -> Steam -> Expansion in Engine -> Rotary Motion -> Generator -> LED

Plans for this engine are available for download on our website: Lamppost Engine Plans.
