The Stuart Triple is a very accurate model of a marine steam engine. It comes complete with working reverse gear, feed pump and condenser vacuum pump and is ideal for a scale steamer or tug, being a delight to watch under steam. The Stuart Triple is one of the most complex models in the Stuart range, however the time and effort is well invested as it is also one of the most attractive. Many of these engines are kept as display models, whilst others are built into dioramas recreating the engine room of a steam liner or large launch.
