Yes Kim, I hope it's a nice weekend and I'm glad that my father, at 81 years old, is still doing it.

Here's another suggestion for Roger. He could install his Junkers engine in a Feldbahn locomotive.


And I knew that Fowler had a company in my hometown, but I had never actually seen a tractor.

Greetings Michael

If there is that Fowler tractor nearby, you may need to do a model of it!

I have some old Marion catalogs of the gold mining dredges they did with bucket lines like that model has. I've never seen a drag line like that with the three rails underneath plus the rails for the ore cars, there is a LOT going on in that video!  On the gold dredges, the buckets went in the other direction to lift up dirt/rocks out at the end under the water, and lifted them up onto the boom, back into the dredge where they were dumped into a trommel barrel for washing before putting the gold/dirt through a set of riffles to separate the gold. Lots of different variation on that type of machine!
Great show, thanks for the pictures/videos!

Today we're steaming.
I have my "Dörfel", "the Sachsenberg" and an oscillating steam engine with me.

Greetings Michael

The weather was great yesterday. But there are a lot of mosquitoes here that annoy us.
I have a video of the large steam engine that powered the factory. And a video of the engines and models. Unfortunately, there are always fewer exhibitors. Only a few young people left.

Michael, I enjoyed those video's it looks a great place to have a steam festival, thanks for showing them.
I was in Berlin 1957/59 doing my army service there was some steam powered craft on the river Havel in those days, and by the way I also remember the mosquitoes a real pain.

Finally today I have my Stuart No. 1 connected to the boiler. After over 10 years I am still convinced that it is perfect.
