I’m curious if any of my fellow Cox enthusiasts dabble with steam engines. I built a Midwest Model VI engine kit about 10 years ago and got around to building a boat to put it in a few years later, the Midwest Fantail Launch II. After running it on a pond once, I ended up packing it away for the next 7 years. A couple of weeks ago, I attended a model boat event in Clear Lake, TX that was hosted by RC Roundtable member, Fitz Walker III. I had a great time running a RC boat again after many years and the guys there seemed to really appreciate my steam-powered vessel. Here is a short video of the live steamer in action.

I haven’t jumped into steam engines.....yet. Never say never. My son, similar to Bob’s son Mark does keep an eye out for Hobby stuff, planes and engines. He sent me a link to a FB Marketplace posting for a new estate sale a few towns away with this picture.

My father was restoring an old Wilesco steam engine for my son, he lost the use of his hands about a year before he passed away. I finished it up and gave it to my son. Here is a short video of it running after putting it all back together.

Yep, Eric. Good fun! I had lost most of my interest in that stuff some time back. Funny how it comes back around.

David, I have a pretty large collection of pop pop boats. Some are homemade as well. Haven’t run them in years but that will probably change. The old timers at the boat event were very interested in my steamer. I described my pop pop boats abs they asked me to bring some to the next outing in a few months.
