Hi A 5" gauge loco was sold on E-Bay yesterday for £3226 that had a stainless steel boiler. The vender (a Dealer I think) informed me of the Boiler construction, when being nosey I enquired. This got me thinking so I checked with my club Boiler Inspector about S/S Boilers. He stated that no way would he issue a Boiler Cert for a S/S Boiler. He also added that as far as he was aware no insurance company would accept it unless Certificates could be produced regarding the quality of the S/S and the welding. Has anybody any experiance of this? Has somebody somewhere bought an engine that is a lemon? Regards Clif MODEL ENGINEERING DISCUSSION LIST.
