Links to the Right Information
Here is a short listing of some of the better websites that will give a quick introduction to steam power. I am assuming that this present website is attracting many people with little exposure to steam power in any form. Those of us who have spent our lives thinking about it and collecting information about steam know so much that we are seldom able to describe the basics well enough so that we can communicate at all with anyone.
"There is enough information out there that we don't need to repeat the mistakes of the past to create the best modern steam engine." ---Tom Kimmel
Arm yourself with good scientific information. Learn from the past or you are doomed to repeat it...that means a lot of money spent on mistakes.
