Miniature Steam


Recommended Posts

Anyone in the Nantwich / Crewe area this coming Saturday, 13th September, with an interest in live steam and other models might enjoy South Cheshire Model Engineering Society's annual Open Day. We will be running steam and other trains giving rides, plus an exhibition of static models (including my nearly finished traction engine) . Free entry too!

Rear of the Premier Inn car park, CW5 6NE.

Thanks Rusty,

I go to the Normanby Park rally in your part of the world every year as it coincides with annual work in Scunny, very convenient!

45 yrs building live steam models Locos and Traction Engines . I like making model engines that are not off the shelf and are only ones made nowhere and need investigation and a challenge . The Fowler Showmans (Red) another is now being built by a person in India who contacted me for information . The Garrett Showmans (Blue) was the only one but a person in Lincoln has now made the same . I also have a one off that was a redesigned and rescaled Hunslet tank that was featured at the London ME and in the publication Model Engineer .

We are currently in the caravan, in France, in the rain, hence my quick reply. ....

My 4" McLaren is nearly finished now. Hydraulic and steam tested, just putting the final bits (gear guards and canopy ) before its first rally as a goer.

We will be at Normanby Park, near Scunthorpe for May Day weekend.

I'll post a photo when we get back to a real computer.

Sunbathing here all afternoon.

 

Look forward to seeing some pictures of the McLaren.

It's all the finish parts that take the time I find knowing when to stop. I was just puting the last touches to the Garretts roof 2 yrs ago.

We have a chap who lives near us who has Markham Grange Nursery, he's also interested in old steam engines, its worth popping in if you get a chance.

I thought I had heard of Mill Meece but wasn't sure where it was - found it now for anyone else interested - near Stone, between Stoke and Stafford

We have been to Belper before whilst building the engine but didn't book this year as I was uncertain of getting everything running in time.

As it turns out we would have been OK. Maybe next year!

I've got a few little ones. I love steam, was anyone at cranford steam rally at the weekend? Also got a mamod workshop and wilesco drill that isn't in that picture. If I find any recent ones of all of them together I'll upload them. Sorry they are upside down!
