Anna,

Do you have a better description of what you need?

The LN steam engine that I am familiar with is essentially an empty can with a hole that rests on an airtrack glider. LN is poured into the can and the can is capped. The can has a small hole in a spout. The steam emitted from the LN pushes the glider.

Is this what you want?

The one I saw was home made, I believe. -- JZ

Do a little more of that work which you have confessed to be good,
Which you feel that society and your most Just Judge rightly demand of you.
Cultivate the tree which you have found to bear fruit in your soil.
If you have any experiments you would like to try, try them.
Now's your chance.

Henry David Thoreau, Journal entry, 1850.
