Hi, I"m a new member, and live in the Isle of Man, where I am a member of Friends of the Earth. I have spent the last year building electric bicycles, driven in various ways.
I read that a steam shunting locomotive could shunt for two hours, with no boiler. I would like your views on driving a bicycle with superheated water with the boiler in the garage. What would be the most effective way to use this potential steam to drive my bicycle. How about driving a turbine to drive an electric dynamo??
I am David

Hi David,
I found this video of a car working on the same principal as you mention, I hope this helps. Here's the link [] George.

sorry the link doesn't appear to work (as usual!). If you type in your top search bar , the video should appear. George.

All your links have worked fine for me. When the page opens with the heading This content cannot be displayed in a frame, click on - Open this content in a new window. It then plays fine.
