An Aussie in the USA
« on: July 03, 2018, 04:44:10 PM »
Hey Folks,

I have been living in the USA for about 20 years (originally from Sydney and Adelaide) Started in MA and now spread between San Francisco and Arlington VA.

My workshop in SF is based around a Sieg SC4 from LMS and Precision Matthews Mill

Just finished my first steam engine, a Tubal Cain Polly for my grandson - build pics coming later

Looking to step up to larger stationary engines, with less interest in locos

 :hi: Andrew,

Sounds like you are off to a good start  :ThumbsUp: Hopefully we can tempt you with some more engines to build.

Not sure why you would want to leave Aussie for the USA  :noidea: But they do have a few more casting sets available over that side of the pond  ;).
