Years ago, I visited the USS Olympia in Philadelphia. She had at least one triple expansion steam engine. I spent a lot of time tracing with my eye, the path of the steam through that magnificent piece of machinery.Many years later, I dove on a sunken steamship off the coast of North Carolina. There in middle of a disintegrating wreck, stood proud, a triple expansion steam engine. Something magnificent to see, the engine still intact, the rest of the ship fallng apart. (Thanks to a U boat) Still to this day, one of my most memorable sights.
Yeah, back then, they built things to last, not to be obsolete in three years and/or break down one week after the 90-day warranty expired. Steampunk rocks, FTW!
If steam engines and gas light were good enough for Sherlock Holmes they're good enough for me.
The museum where my Amateur Radio club has it's station has a *working* model of one of these. I'm not sure what the scale is, maybe 1:100, and it hasn't been run in a few years, but it _does_ work.If you're ever in Los Angeles, drop by the Los Angeles Maritime Museum in San Pedro.
