steam engine

A steam engine is the natural starting place for a model builder. It takes few castings or tools, yet yields a model which is just as: satisfying as the most complex. This is one of the engines described in our catalog. Why not order a copy, only $2.


We lived and worked one winter for the elder Mr. Forman, about 1906. Mr. Forman loved children and always made quite a to-do over sister and me.

All my life I have loved engines and always was playing engine. At the age I have related, I could imitate to perfection a single cylinder stationary gas engine from starting to crank it, to when it first fired and from there on till I had enough.
