New book, 112 pages. Those of an engineering bent who wish to make a live steam model have a basic choice between a railway locomotive, a stationary or marine engine or a traction engine in one form or another. In this book, the doyen of traction engine modelling, John Haining, explains what is involved in the construction of working steam models and outlines briefly the history and variety of such engines. A degree of reader familiarity with normal machine work and workshop practice is assumed, but even an inexperienced lathe owner will easily follow the procedures with the aid of the many clear illustrations provided by the author and will be encouraged to try his hand at this fascinating branch of model engineering.
