Something a bit different here - this is a COAL fired steam plant, with a Stuart Turner 10V steam engine. The plant also has a manual & steam powered boiler feed pump. During the testing phase with this plant, I was amazed at the length of time that the Stuart Turner 10V engine would run on just three shovelfuls of coal. The fire on a coal fired boiler gets very hot indeed, I ran this plant on very small pieces of Welsh Steam Coal - A great combination - loads of heat & a great smell too!
