Interesting Deathtrap Steamer Trike in Russia?

This has been at the top of smokstak.

Very interesting, it's admirable that it moves under it's own power.

Scariest looking boiler I've seen in use.

Dear lord! I predict either a long or a very short career for him. To think, the U.S. thought they had just dropped the largest bomb in Afghanistan! And he has a boat too!

I like that it is not condensing. One of the big things I like about Fred's stern wheeler is the slow exhaust. Single acting. Needs to be with a trunk piston. How about it Bart? Is it a uniflow?

Interesting that he seems to need to stand up to work the throttle. Must be a batch loader as I see no attempt at a feed water system. I'm not sure but I think the reason he is over on the wrong side of the street sometimes is the rather primitive steering. And the welding looks just like mine.

This young Russian genius takes any chance available to leave this world in a huge plume of steam. Image

The guy seems to have no fancy precision tooling, all of his engine seem to be made with but a stick welder and an angle grinder Image which is quite an achievement. Image
