ELI5: Explain Like I'm 5

live steam

Live steam is when we use water and heat to create steam that can be used to power machines or toys. Just like when we boil water in a kettle to make hot tea, when we heat water in a special boiler, it creates steam.

The steam can then be directed to power devices such as locomotives, boats, or even small engines. People who love live steam enjoy building and operating these devices, making all sorts of interesting and fun models.

By controlling the heat and water flow, we can change the speed and power of the steam, and control the movements of our toys. So, in summary, live steam is a fun way to play with steam technology and create something that is both beautiful and functional.
