Mnitram Build Series - Steam in the Garden

One of our astute readers found a measurement omission on Drawing B of the Part 1 Minitram build series. We have received and updated the page for Drawing B and it has replaced the original drawing in the PDF. For those working on the project, please log in to the Steam in the Garden website,, and download a new set from the Workshop Plans. Thanks and Happy Building!

Part affected is the Piston. Overall length to cut tubing has been added as well as correcting the cross hole placement.

We’ve also updated the E-Edition PDF and Flipbook presentation with a new page. If you have already downloaded the magazine in PDF, an updated version is now available.

New Update: Shortly after going to printing on Issue #170 Tower Hobbies discontinued carrying the gears needed for this build. This was only recently discovered when one of our readers tried to order a set. Thankfully the gears, manufactured by Robinson Racing are still available through one of their distributors --
