    Nice hobby,

    Looks like a Mamod, I had one like that as a kid.. it had a long handle on the front roller to steer it as you walked along with it .. you can see where it should attach .. :thumb:

    Who remembers Gamages in London? they used to sell all this type of stuff mail order and from their shop.

    Bought a Stuart Turner double 10 upright steam engine un-machined kit from them in about 1964, and built it at school in metalwork lessons, broke a leg off while machining it :cry: but managed to braze it back together. :BigGrin:

    Can you still get these?They used to have meths burners but I seem to remember they went over to solid fuel in the interests of safety.?

    Has a few as a kid....Wish I'd kept them all.

    That methylated spirits was a bit dodgy though.....:Rofl1:

    Who had the Jetex motors too.? Looks like you can still get them. Jetex UK "Boys" and their toys eh!!!
