    Yeah i dont know what happend, i tried to delete it, i have seen some HO live steamers, hand made ones but never this one in person, it looks interesting because it uses track power to boil the water, the video is neat.

    I know of the Hornby one...about 20 years ago someone put out a live steam Stephenson's Rocket. It ran for about 20 minutes on an alcohol flame and lived up to its name because of its lack of a throttle control. Be interesting to see if there are any of those lurking around on eBay or no.
