Just found this group and though I'd try it out.
Been working out in the Gulf States for the last 12 years and currently just been moved to the West Midlands in England.
I'll be here for about a three years or so before being moved on again.
I'd like to get setup with a small workshop while I'm here and would like to meet any Brit's in the area who could help me do that.
I've always been interested in steam traction and last week I went to a steam rally up in Pickering in Yorkshire. That was some impressive meeting.
I have never seen anything like this when I was stateside, there were at least 50 of the big ornate showmans engines all in steam at the same time plus many more of the ordinary traction engines and rollers.
I've made some enquries and there are about 15 to 20 companies doing kits for these engines so at the moment I'm spoilt for choice.
So if there are any Brits that can give me any advise on either machinery or models I'd apreciate it.
