Hello Mr Sunshine
Is that an R31 in the background?

Cheers Scott

Hello all
Believe it or not Mr Sunshine, one of my number plates is GOR31. It's got a picture of Homer Simpson on it.

Here is a video of a few of our engines running at a charity fund raising day a local heavy horse person has every years to raise funds for the rescue helicopter.
Sorry about the wind noise. Couldn't do much about that.

Cheers Scott

A change from internal combustion with my Jacko dairy boiler and Large scale model mill steam engine that was built as an apprentice project at the Ballarat school of Mines.

Hello Nathan,
That is simply brilliant. I could watch steam stuff all day. It never seizes to amase me just how much work some heated up water will do.
Thanks for posting the video.

Cheers Scott

Also if anyone out there has some fittings for a Jacko boiler I would like the gauge glass mounts and I would also like a picture of an original grate. Thank you Scott good to hear I am not the only one mesmerized by the poetry in motion that is a steam engine.
Regards, Nathan

Hello Robert
Thanks for that. That's an engine I have never seen before. It has a very even beat hasn't it.

Cheers Scott

I'm going to have to get an unusual engine (for Australia) out and do a video this week-end. I have just the one in mind.

Here is one I had not started in a long time, My 1915 5hp Bartram Type AK. I fire it up every year or so and it always goes first try.

I also fired up my little Fairbanks-Morse Eclipse No.1 on the weekend. It doesn't always start first try but it does start eventually. This is the engine that started me in the hobby. My father bought it for me 36 years ago.
Patrick.

Got a steam engine running for the first in over 35 years at the Millicent museum the other day. The little air compressor couldn't keep up. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=29A75AGargY
If anyone has any more info on this type of tangey I would be interested. I am after an original spring adjuster for the governor and lubricator.
Regards, Nathan
