Nice Little Monitor
« on: November 24, 2018, 08:06:19 PM »
I thought I would post these pictures to give Zee a  :stickpoke:

At the traction engine group meeting today the speaker Jon Gregory had a nice little Monitor engine, the base is about 6" x 10" for an idea of size. He also brought along some other scratch built models of other Erricson engines.
