Hello all,
I've made a few stationary steam models in the distant past, but have always maintained an interest in models but have been more involved with full size engines.
My background is engineering and I started out as an Armourer, then went into General Engineering and finished up real work as a Metrologist at a large dockyard that worked mainly on submarines.
Project at the moment is converting a small 2 stroke, from a Whipper-Snipper, to run on steam via a pair of rotary valves; one for starting and one for running, sort of a 'notched up' valve.

I live in the New England district of New South Wales, Australia.

Hi all,

after reading this board for a while I took the plunge and registered.

From my very early childhood I'm passionate about technology and steam locomotives in particular. Currently I'm an engineering student. Unfortunately almost every part of my study is theoretical, so I decided to live the dream and start constructing a homemade steamlocomotive (to gain practical experience and because it is something I always wanted). This was a "homemade Dacre" and it has been finished for a while now, so I started a new project: the design and build of a 0-6-0 gauge 1 steam engine.
This locomotive will be an altered and improved version of the Dacre. Besides more wheels I'm trying to add a Walschaerts valve gear, water gauge, whistle, insulated boiler etc.

Cheers, M

by the way: I'm from Belgium
