The very thought of 'mating' a beautiful Aster with another makers' chassis fills me with horror. Visions of Rosemary's Baby etc.

A better plan might be to see if the electric chassis could be adapted for steam. Some electric Asters had all the cylinders and valve gear but a motor where the boiler should be. You need to persuade someone who has an electric Aster Daylight to let you take the lid off and look inside.
If it looked promising then Aster might be persuaded to let you have the boiler and fittings or you could have a new boiler made up by someone like Harry Wade. That route would leave a model with some integrity!!:)
