    I am into steam engines, mostly the tabletop models and steam plants. Stuart, Bing, Wilesco, Mamod, just to name a few.
    I got my first steam engine as a Christmas present in 1968. I still have it, It is a Fleshman that came with a line shaft and grinding wheel.
    I have built my collection to about 38 models now. Love everything about the simplicity of steam.

    Welcome to the group Rob,
    I am just south of both of you in what was originally West Hill Ont. It's now part of Scarborough/ Toronto.
