you could say that steam's pass'e that may be unkind it isn't so bad. not all that long ago i ran a steam turbine. I had to open the valve slowly to let the turbine reach full speed without letting liquid water strike turbine blades at high speed, breaking vanes. this steam engine is an older design, a certain kind of beautiful, inspiring reverence. the old steel boiler, and unimagineable moveable dream of an engine.
