Check out the paper on Lamont Boilers on the www.stanleysteamers.com site
Seems to be the agreed best choice for compact size, buildability, some capacity reserve and easier control. Most Steam cars are running 400 to 1200psi to get the component size down. Is your 250psi inlet after the throttle?. Will you use a centrifuge as per Karl Petersen's site http://www.firedragon.com/~kap/SteamTopics/ on your single acting unit?
Could you expand on closed cycle noncondensing?
Sorry really interested in anything Steam Car! You can see my beast in theTours Heallesville section on the Stanley steamers site

Inline twin cylinder, single-acting uniflow, closed-cycle, non-condensing, two-stage Cornish/Monotube boiler, variable cut-off, 250 psi inlet pressure, perhaps with a turbo-pump for steam recirculation
