STUART TURNER TRIPLE EXPANSION ENGINE

Stuart Turner is one of the great names in model engineering and continues to this day as Stuart Models. This triple expansion marine engine was shown by F Bilney at the 2019 Doncaster show.

Drawings and castings for a triple are still available. It comes complete with working reverse gear, feed pump and condenser vacuum pump and is ideal for a scale steamer or tug, being a delight to watch under steam.

The Stuart Triple is one of the most complex models in its range. However, the time and effort is well invested as it is also one of the most attractive. Many of are kept as display models, while others are built into dioramas recreating the engine room of a steam liner or large launch.
