This model can be run
with live steam using our new optional Steam
it will run off compressed air
at less than 2psi.
The Beam Type A in
combination with our new Steam Plant is the replacement for
our popular Beam Type S. Because of the new modular
arrangement, you will not only have the advantage of an easy
to build model but you will now have the option to purchase
the Engine and Steam Plant separately.
The parts for the Beam A are
ready made and
as such, no drilling, cutting, threading, shaping
or soldering is required.
You will need a screwdriver,
a pair of pliers,
small hand drill (or pin
vice) for drilling pilot holes in the wood plinth and some super glue to put the kit
together. To set up the engine and make it run smoothly,
you will probably need some fine emery cloth, maybe a small
file to take off any rough edges and a couple of
small drill bits (1mm,3mm and 3/16") for making pilot holes
in the hardwood base and to clean up any holes that may need
