Battleship on rails!
This video shows the first live steam powered trial of the Steampunk Rail Battleship Barnum's Dream.
You can get lots of information on the model and how it was built at the blog here:Published on Apr 14, 2013Battleship train ship model with cannons and lasers that fire. It has many handmade moving parts that are driven by a live steam engine. The video is a depiction of it's first trial run, with some animation and effects thrown in. It was made from over 50 found parts and took over 2500 hours to construct. Except for the steam engine, which was modified, it is totally hand built using ordinary home tools.
It is almost four feet tall and 51 inches long. Hope you enjoy.
