RC Live Steam Tank 1 in action

This small steam powered tank might not be of any use today, but it tells all about the basic science behind the working of locomotives. Stage by stage, the maker ended up with a perfect fully working piece. It wasn’t an easy task. First a wilesco D49 double piston engine was tested, but was removed as it was using up too much steam for the vertical boiler to keep up. RC control was added to the final model in which a Mamod SE3 boiler with super heater replaced the earlier one.
