Beam type steam engine model

This engine was designed by Elmer Verburg and published in the Nov 1980 edition of Live Steam. Modeled after the huge Power/Pumping engines of the early 1900's, these engines where sometimes 2 stories in height and had a flywheel of 18 feet or more in diameter. This was the first scratch-built engine I have built since purchasing a Sieg Mini-Lathe and Mini-Mill. It is shown operating on compressed air (2 to 5 PSI), but I hope to soon have it running on steam.
