The "Twin Launch" series of vertical steam engines is a popular type for use in model steam boats. These engines are a robust resign & if they are well engineered in the first place, will give great results in a model steam boat.
The Stuart Turner "Twin Launch" engines have 1 inch bore cylinders and are also slide valve engines. These Stuart "Twin Launch" engines are very powerful.
Included are several publications that my uncle stored with this model a Live Steam magazine that talked about it, and a couple catalogs. They are all in good, used condition (kept on a shelf in his library). There is a photo of each cover included.
Live Steam Magazine: Build Rudy Kouhoupts Fore & Aft Compound Engine , March 1988. Coles Power Models Catalog , 1986 (Picture of Triple Expansion Steam Engine). Look at the pictures and ask any questions you might have. I will do my best.
