Great pics Jo and Thank You. I wish there was something like that here in Canada. You folks "over there" have all the fun!

Cheers,

Tom

Hi Tom, have you checked out the TSME? https://sites.google.com/site/tsmeweb/home? I will be attending the May meeting. My father was a member in the 1970's-80's , I attended some meetings with him in those days. Now it is my turn, as a hobby machinist :-) Great group of people.

  Jo those were some wonderful pictures. Made me wish I could of been there. :Love:
 I noticed in some of the picture the engines were cabled do they have problems with engines walking off (getting stolen)?
  Man there were a lot of nice looking engines there. Thanks again for going through the effort of taking and getting them posted appreciated here!

Pleased you found them interesting  :ThumbsUp:.

Doc: The alarm system is an insurance requirement and yes engines which were not wired up have been known to go missing  :'(

Thanks for posting the pics, Jo.
 In the first two photos one of the engines has a lot of blue protrusions that appear to be pressure ports for testing instrumentation. Is that right?

Nice to see a photo of the flame gulper, I made one from a rather indistinct drawing in an old ME magazine, mine works OK, but does not look as good as mine is mainly steel, and cast iron, and has been run quite a bit, and shows the effect of heating(over heating).

I'm late on parade again Jo  ::) I must have missed this first time round.

Yes indeed, a  lovely set of pics of some varied and interesting engines. The little wall engine - I guess that was on the SMEE stand - triggered a distant memory. I was attracted to one on the Taunton MES stand many years ago when exhibiting at Kew. I still have the details kindly sent by a Norman Phelps - just checked, it was 1992  :o now where has that time gone.
