Unless you know more about steam boilers with model locomotives and their annual certifications I beg to believe your blowing smoke up your stack. Sorry to be harsh i've been around these model train boilers for over 50 years going thru certifications. Nuff said, PROSIT!
you do understand states rights? i hope ,,what is done where you live does not consern any other person but people liveing in your state, he is not runing a vessle for the public or to be worked on by the public he does not need all your certifications. there is no reason he would ever build any thing over 15~20 psi . locomotives boilers run @ or about 190 psi , we arnt even talking about the same ball park. lots of brewer on this site use steam for brewing, in the same mannor its used in kitchens ,, please shut up about your locomotives and talk turkey, as in how to poatch a turkey in a steam jacket kettle or pressure cooker.
