The model described below resembles the Westinghouse high speed stationary steam engines used in driving electric generators for lighting circuits. It is simple in design, serviceable in operation and presents no great difficulties in construction.
This engine, when constructed from a set of magnalite castings, makes a wonderful power plant for a model boat of from three to five feet long, and it delivers considerable speed and power. It will also be found to be a reliable and consistent runner, which is a valuable advantage.
