I just received word that the boiler for the model building has passed its annual inspection so barring any unexpected surprises we should have steam (as well as compressed air) for the models.

I'll be steaming this model



along with some air powered engines.  I hope some of you can turn out for the show.

Cheers,
Phil

I  would like to go; but, distance and a scheduling conflict won't allow it.

I'll be there on Saturday.
I hope there's room for me!
I always enjoy the spring steamup-great machinery, great people, and great food!

Once again, I'm packing the engines in the car. The Steamup is today and tomorrow.
Pictures will follow after the show.

I believe I'll be there.  :ThumbsUp:
That's the plan anyway.  :thinking:
But I do not live alone.  :paranoia:

Caution! Real steam engines in this post. Some models also. If you're ever near here (about an hour from Philadelphia) this is not to be missed.

Let's start with PhilJoe who was on boiler duty.



And, here's the slideshow. Many of the large steam engines are running. Thanks Phil!
Enjoy!

Thanks for all those, a few there that would be a good basis for a bit of scratch building :)

Excellent slideshow Stan! I am amazed at the range of things there in addition to the engines and traction engines. How large is the property where this show takes place...it looks to be large with lots of different buildings, etc.?

Thanks for those, Stan.  That treadle lathe and the camel back drill press almost look as if they might have been the models for the machine tool models that PMR sells.
