9 Engine Stirling Run.
You'd think this would be a lot easier. They keep running out of metho and its hot and humid here and I have a fan going which was also playing havoc. Still a lot of fun

That looks like fun, but what's wrong with the low temperature ones? Did you run out of tea?

Same for me Doug , 5 I think ...
And I planned to add some for this year ...      

I managed 4 steam engines at the same time , this is my maximum for one person...
It is safer to run stirlings ... so we can add some

As time goes on, I find myself leaning more and more towards Stirlings than steam...fascinating creations.

Nice demo Jim...keeping 9 of them going is pretty impressive.

Thanks guys for the comments much appreciated

I must also add, the heat that was coming up from those 9 small metho flames was pretty impressive and could be felt!
