Morning Helmut and Lawton sound great where you both live.
Electric cargo bikes on a flat road are great yes Helmut they have a future, these little bikes I will leave but I have plans for more -ice cream, hot dogs, juices. They are simple little creations and in 1/35 there  bicycle kits that can be used as kitbashed bases.
Simple satisfying projects.
All the best Kim

I'm doing well.  Weather here is warm and for the weekend dry.  I remember a bicycle powered ice cream vendor as a child in Richmond.  Paint it bright colors and put your new image on the side.

I'm happy about your wonderful little scenes.
In addition, I think cargo bikes have a future again, if maybe with some electric support.

Bill (5th Wheel), Thanks, that's what I've been looking at doing. I don't like the plumbing up high, the flywheel is too big and the boiler firebox is awkward, but I think I can make it work.

Les, sorry, didn't mean to hijack your thread.

Well the two engines are almost complete (as far as can be before mounting on the support beams which will include the main transmission beam).  The reversing gear will then be added.  The attached photo shows them in my usual dark grey before final painting with steel, silver, etc. to highlight the detail.   Some of the bits were rather fideley (scale is 1/24th) especially the springs on top of the valve levers (very fine plastic rod wrapped around a larger piece of rodding) plus lots of nbw's (from Historex Agents here in the UK).

Wow! Those look fantastic!

Thanks, Les. Somehow I got it in my sieve of a head that you 3D printed the engines. They look really good.

Yes, I have a few photos of steam launches, new and restored, taken at a museum, and your description of details to feature are spot on.
I'm not that good to be able model the engine in HO scale, but have been looking at possibly kitbashing an HO Woodland Scenics Rural Sawmill engine and boiler that a friend gave me, although the castings are very rough. I think the molds have passed their prime.
Here's what the kit looks like built as intended.

I would suggest that you turn the engine 90 and run the prop shaft directly off the flywheel rather than by belt.
