    Very nicely done. I built the reversible Elmer Verburg model myself and enjoyed doing it.

    You might want to lower the air pressure a bit, though. Steam engines ran at a rather leisurely pace - much slower and more stately than, say, an IC engine. At exhibitions I run my engines from an air brush compressor. It's small and quiet but puts out enough pressure and volume to power even my multi-cylinder engines.

    If you'd like to spend some quality time with other miniature engine builders, I can heartily recommend the Model Engine Makers forum...

    The people there are both friendly and helpful.

    Great thing. Have you thought about connecting a power generator?
