A steam engine as a cardboard construction kit, which is driven by real boiling steam – can that work out well? But yes, and how!
See for yourself: This model is not only beautiful to look at, it also works beautifully.
The boiler made of corrosion-resistant aluminium has a magnetic pressure relief valve, the fire from 5 tea lights is shielded by a galvanized wire grid and the steam is led through a closed hose and foil system and released outside via a chimney.
The power development remains modest, but so does the safety-relevant boiler pressure.
