What is the cost for a beginner steam engine? Engine, firebox, etc.

#4 Ghost 2501 Dec 23, 2009 08:40 AM

probably about the same as a zenoah petrol engine,

Loyalhanna carries Saito Steam engines:

Stuart Models has rough castings, machined castings and assembled steam engines, as well as boilers and cetera

MiniSteam carries Jensen, Mamod and Wilesco steam engines:

And that's all I have thus far.

I do like the idea of castings for a build-it-y'self steam engine... :D :D

A suggestion: it might be better to have a few words of explanation besides each link, such as "steam engines", "boilers", "fitings" etc.

And congratulations for the new steam section!:D

Tugfan, the Midwest Heritage kit (motor and boiler, ready to go after 1/2 hr setup) costs about $120 at Tower Hobbies. I've used, or seen, them power several models: 4' tramp steamer, 2' sternwheeler, G-gauge loco, LegoLoco, Lego Crane (ran on air).
