Short video of a recent run of my Bowman M101.

Every time I run this engine, it always surprises me of just how powerful they are.

I do like watching Bowman engines run especially the 101.

I had mine running for over an 1hr on 1 filling, what's the longest you have run yours for?

Thanks guys for the replies all.

Yes Les, an hour with the burner filled up is what I get as well and still a fair bit of water left in the boiler.

A very nice Bowman indeed ...

Big and long lasting boiler and burner are very attractive  

Thanks for that nice vid, Jim
