The twin Victoria steam engine is from the ever popular Stuart Models stable and was pictured at the Bristol Exhibition in 2016. It was build by Richard Beel and shown by Julian Beel. The Stuart Victoria follows closely the design of low pressure horizontal engines used throughout the nineteenth century, to provide power in workshops and factories. The large flywheel allows the engine to run smoothly at low speeds where the long elegant stroke can be appreciated. The Twin Victoria is essentially two Stuart Victorias running side by side. The flywheel is 7”  dia and cylinders are 1” bore and 2” stroke. Overall length is 15.5”
