Magazine Description

In this issue

Anthony Mount’s articles are always well received and this one will be no different. Describing an unusual true vertical steam engine, Anthony provides a full metric parts list and a a full set of drawings, opening this time with a series of General Arrangement drawings. Everything you need to follow this construction. The small steam launch engine continues as Robert Walker looks at the construction of the valve and George Punter provides all the drawings needed to make the component parts of the carburettor of his 1913 agricultural tractor by Saunderson & Mills. Engineers always enjoy a Day Out and Roger Backhouse suggests another, slightly off the beaten track. This time he visits the Scottish Lighthouse Museum and other places preserving lighthouse history. There’s a fascinating article by Don Broadley who casts a scientific eye over the subject of locomotive efficiency. Don brings together the studies of both Jim Ewings and Bill Hall, both eminent model locomotive engineers, and analyses their test results to reach an answer to the question; ‘What Happens to the Other 98 Percent?’ Compulsive reading for all IMLEC competitors and followers indeed! The popular marine type engine draws to a close this issue as Chris Walter completes the final detail and paints the engine and Jacques Maurel makes his Taper Turning Attachment; an in-depth Workshop project.
