In the UK steam power generally evokes memories of the legendary Fred Dibnah and crowds of “trainspotter” types standing around drooling over machinery in windy fields. Maybe that happens in the States too – but they also have Neverwas Haul ! One of the coolest steam engines I ever saw – a bizarre Fred Dibnah/Wacky Races/Addams Family hybrid. How on earth have they got it to Burning Man? Water supplies must have been a nightmare to organise.
How about a new tech steam engine for power boats? Oh yes – the future looks hot and moist.
