I think that if I were doing that to such an old boiler I would at least want remote control and preferably FPV too. They go with such a bang when the go.

Don't know what it's like in the states but in the UK it would be subject to a ten year boiler exam before you're able to put a match near it.

There was a case in 1864 involving a railway locomotive at Colne Lancashire. A piece of plate from the exploding boiler fell through the roof of a cottage 1/4 mile from the scene of the incident ihnjuring the leg of an old lady lying in bed. High pressure steam is something that demands respect...
