STEAM POWER

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.

And there’s more – Kinetic Steam Works are taking an engine to Burning Man, too. Their idea of using the drive wheels to print on soft ground is inspired and I hope they sort it out soon.

How about a new tech steam engine for power boats? Oh yes – the future looks hot and moist.
