Extract from back cover of book:

Since the publication of the first book dealing with these fascinating little engines, the author has designed and built several more both as presents for the younger generation of his family and also, as he confesses, for his own satisfactinn. These are now described in this second volume.

The engines range from a delightful little turbine - simplicity itself in design but very interesting to build - to a larger engine in the style of the magnificent 'Steam Engines of the Highest Class' which were offered by the better toymakers before the First World War.

As in the first book the methods of construction are fully detailed, all being written with the beginner in mind.
