Building the Smokebox, Chimney and Perch

The smokebox sits right at the front end on a real, full size, live-steam traction engine or roller and it provides five main functions:

1... Access to the internal boiler tubes for cleaning purposes.

2... A chamber in which a blast of steam from the exhaust up the chimney causes a partial vacuum below it and in the fire tubes - that way drawing air through the fire.

3... A support point for the chimney.

4... A place to attach the steering arrangement (although some engines had this mounted further back, actually sitting under the front of the boiler barrel – but we shall not be going down that road for simplicity’s sake).

5... Somewhere hot to fry your bacon and sausages or boil your kettle when it’s brew time.

In this live-steam model we need only two of those functions as it serves only to support the chimney and have the steering mounted under it, plus it also provides the necessary appearance of a conventional live steam traction engine.
