Ahhhhhhh, and here we have a critical issue. Heating with propane flames means you need a bigass propane tank, and I can almost guarantee using it to heat up water is less efficient than using in a combustion engine - I dont see any way of getting a good economy out of this.It's not a about steam, think about steampunk stuff.
I would created the heat using propane flames, and it would have a big water tank with asump and some sort of condensing system to return some water back into the tank.
Listen, people make miniature steam powered trains all the time, I'm simpley talking about bringing it into the medium scale between the small and the actual trains.
