Tim I said Great book on model engineering. I taught Industrial Ed in the 1970's and used working steam engines as a project base. Having something with moving parts that could 'work' when the project was finished really motivated the students to keep at it. This little book was one of my 'secret weapons' to solve the working problems. It is a model engineer's steam engine primer. Loaded with detail and drawings that make the things 'go.' Written in English . an oldie but a goodie An authoritative and comprehensive review of the subject. A must read for newbies, and a frequently accessed resource for more experienced modelers. Also very interesting descriptions of how steam engines work. They are more complicated than appears from the rather simple mechanicals. I was repeatedly borrowing it from the library, but it is so nice to have my own copy now.. "Steam Power" according to Frank H. Krause. Great little book : Loads of plans and idea's, answers questions about controls and reverse gearsI'v never found in other books.
