Having studied both restored and unrestored versions I am undecided as to which I prefer. Both have their respective merits and appeal. As long as they bring enjoyment to the owners I guess it doesn't really matter.

John, your restored engine looks fantastic! I was tempted to restore mine, but loving the aged look of her.

Looks like it, yours seems to have a few extras on it.

Looks like its just on the limit of that first radius curve! It's quite a long wheelbase, runs well though.

Here's mine on test.

A very nice steady runner by the looks of it. Stewart's safety valves do have a character all their own.
