Quote”What could be better than a 9 cylinder radial engine? Why, a home built 9 cylinder radial, of course! Russell Sutton continues to work on his engine projects, (yes, I said projects, because he’s already beginning his next engine) and we just received the latest updates on the radial build many of you have been following which began many years ago using 9 cylinders and heads from the Honda XR600 single.

In the last video of this project, Russell said he was setting this radial up as a running display and, to that end, it’s been mounted on a permanent stand with a fuel tank, an oil tank and cooler and all of the associated plumbing. The next step will be to engineer a full engine management system and for that, he’s purchased a Megasquirt ECU and added extra processors to control spark and sequential fuel injection.”

Master Li and I raise our flat caps in due respect to this bloke who builds his own 9 cyl radial out of 9 Single Cyl  Motorbike cylinders. Amazing.

Kahlila was thrilled when she found this picture in the National Railway Museum’s Collection. It shows a Galloway boiler be lifted off a flat wagon at the Poplar Docks of the North London Railway in the 1900’s.She was thrilled because she learned to hand fire with a Galloway boiler down at Papplewick Pumping Station. Pic Below

She was proud that the boiler she  fired was still with the original Galloway firedoor and grate. She  told us that Galloways were the best steam raisers of any Lancashire boiler because of their Patent water tubes criss crossing the flues and extracting maximum heat from the fire,
Galloway, a Manchester firm, were world famous for their boilers and built steam engines too.

Galloway’s Boiler Shop which produced a boiler a day.
Picture Below.   Galloway cross compound stationary steam engine. This is in Textile Mill Engine gallery, at the Museum of Science & Industry (MOSI) in Manchester. It was built in 1926 by W & J Galloway and installed at Elm Street Mill, Burnley 

PS:— Don’t you just love the cab of that hydraulic crane, like a little holiday chalet.

STEAMPUNK WINGS
She is going to make one hell of a take off once those rockets fire up. I do hope her ruffles are well fireproofed.
I remember during the war heavily laden aircraft were fitted with RATOG (Rocket Assisted Take Off Gear). Never thought of it in connection with Steampunk, but some of those Steampunk Wings are going to need all the help they can get.
NB:- In US called JATO (Jet Assisted Take Off).  The Yanks  were never clear about the difference between Jets and Rockets.
