Hylary Smith's Meccano Horizontal Steam Engine

Hylton Smith writes: "This example of a horizontal steam engine was seen in a 1950s French Meccano Magazine while visiting another enthusiast in Johannesburg. The model has all the motion work as in the original: rotating crankshaft, flywheel, valve gear, and governor. The colours that it was built in made it a really nice model - blue, gold, and red make a perfect combination. The model was powered by a 15 volt Meccano motor. This model was built by my twin brother Hylary."
