Building the Stuart No1 Steam Engine

On this page I plan to illustrate how I made a Stuart No 1 Steam engine in my workshop. Each of the links below will take you to a page explaining how that part was made. The order of the links here describes the order I made the parts. Obviously the links will only work as I complete the components myself so please check back for updates regularly.
