In steam engines they try and control speed mostly by varying the valve timing, but still only have to deal with a reasonably constant pressure source.

I totally agree Chris. I've lived in each quadrant of the UK and I'm now doing the middle bits LOL but what really amazes me is how some people think 5 miles is too far to go for things. I once drove up to Scotland and back in a day setting off from Surrey! There's arguments for and against any loca...

I've been following ADI for quite some time now and the Tata tie up should be good. There's also a guy in Australia working on a compressed air engine too only his is a Wrankle engine which weighs all of 12kg and could be down to 6kg.
