    Great video Jim, what an awesome collection.
    I've got a few steam models collected over the years but your display is probably the best I've seen.
    Thanks for sharing.
    Cheers,
    Greg.

    Thanks Greg, I've seen collections that make my eyes boggles and I have to pick my tongue up off the floor.

    There's a massive worldwide interest in collecting these old (and not so old) model and toy steam engines.

    I'd love to see some pics of your engines.
    Cheers Jim

    G'day Jim,
    Apologies for my slow response. I don't have photos of all my engines but here's a few of them.

    This is my little Renown 101 which was a bit of a wreck when I first got with nearly every seam melted open after being run dry at some point in time.
    I completely stripped and resoldered it then made a new burner from a couple of welsh plugs.


    This is an Ernst Plank Ideal engine. This one was in really good condition when I got it and only needed a new wooden handle for the whistle and a good clean.


    This is a vacuum or flame eater engine made by the Rotor Corporation of America in Dayton Ohio.
    This one was also in good nick and only needed a clean up.
    There's a video of it running here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zuKVD3XWcdM


    This one is not technically a model but an actual working steam engine from a popcorn wagon.
    The story of this one is documented here:


    Cheers,
    Greg.

    Sorry to say this Greg, but your pics don't work. It comes up with "Invalid Attachment specified. If you followed a valid link, please notify the administrator"

    I just tried uploading them again and can still see them so I'll be buggered if I know what's going on.
    Maybe posting photos in in the video forum is forbidden?
    I'll try posting them in the vintage machinery forum to see if they work any better.
    Cheers,
    Greg.
