Engines I have built
« on: September 25, 2017, 01:57:03 PM »
In this section of the forum we have threads that help people with problems to do with specific engines. As we don't all look in on the forum as often as some and many builds may have happened before MEM, I thought it might be useful to turn the tables and get people to list what engines they have built. So that members could send them PM's with a  :help:

I suppose I should start, with my engines and any known features  :-\

Atom Minor III - Westbury
AHC Diesel - Motor Boys International (Ken Croft)
Calorific Gauge 1 Stirling locomotive - Roy Key
Centaur Horizontal Gas Engine (Carb problems )
Crosskill Oscillating Steam Engine - Anthony Mount
Double Tangye Steam Engine - Westbury
Double Tandem Compound - Horizontal Steam engine
Easton and Anderson grasshopper beam - Anthony Mount
Felgiebel - Two stroke Aero Engine (chops thumbs  :paranoia: )
Kiwi Four stroke petrol Engine - Westbury
Kittiwake Four Stroke petrol engine - Westbury
Lady Stephanie Beam Engine - Tubal Cain
Mary Beam Engine - Tubal Cain
RLE Horizontal Hit and Miss engine - Alyn Foundry
Robinson Hot Air Engine - Alyn Foundry
Robinson Hot Air Engine - Bruce Engineering
R&B Gas Engine - Bruce Davey  (Ornament - carb problems :facepalm2: also squashes thumbs   ::) )
Steeple Engine - Anthony Mount
Stentor two stroke aero engine - Veron
Stothert and Pitt Beam Engine - Jo Thoms
Stuart No 1 - Stuart Models
Stuart No 9 - Stuart Models
Stuart No 10 Vertical engine - Stuart Models
Stuart Standard Beam Engine - Stuart Models

Stuart Swan - Stuart Models
Titan 60 Glowplug Aero Engine -  Gemaco

and underway:

So boys are you willing to admit to what you have built /are building?

I did one of those a few years ago called "guess that casting set"  ::)

But it was only part of the collection  :mischief:

Jo

Edit: P.s. If people knew of all the casting sets I have they may try to talk me out of them  :hellno:

Other than Caloric (Gauge 1 loco which ran but did not have sufficient to power itself along = it was a stationary engine) I have left my vehicles off the engine list  ;)
