Product description

Published in 1969 in hardback with dustjacket and 144 pages long, this was a completely new work on model boilers when it was published and is still regarded as a standard text on the topic of designing and building a model locomotive boiler from a man who was both editor of Model Engineer magazine and a well known and highly respected force in model steam locomotives in his own right with an illustrious history of professionally designing and building model steam locomotives of all gauges, many numbers of which are still in operation around amateur and club tracks today, and with new builds still being constructed. He was editor of model engineer magazine Contains 9 chapters and 37 plates of illustrations. In the book, the author insists upon sound methods of design and construction. Contents: Foreword & introduction. 1. The Modern Locomotive Boiler. 2. Designing Boilers for Models. 3. Welding and Cutting. 4. Silver Soldering and Brazing. 5. Workshop Equipment for Boiler Work. 6. The Construction of Model Boilers. 7. Waters, Fuels and Combustion. 8. Oil and Gas Firing. 9. The Testing of Model Boilers. Martin Evans hoped his book would give model loco builders the confidence to design and build their own boilers, completing their already finely crafted locomotives. Foreword by Professor D. H. Chaddock, C.B.E.
