i would like an idea on how to build a steam engine model for my grand son to do.? Answered

Grandson is 7 and loves steam trains I would like to have instructions on how to build simple small one that works


I love the "compressed air" engines. they are super safe and easy to build and power.

I would start by having him build a Hero's Engine. The very simplest of which this guy has done.  Once he understands the concepts, purchase him a little steam engine kit off ebay or from a model shop.
