Hi all, Abdul here, age 24, I only have 3 engines, but I'm keen too take part in STWWW.
Fascinated by steam since I was quite small, after my neighbour, who sadly passed away, built a replica of an early Stanley steam car, approx 1903-1905.
Here is my table.
Wilesco Showmans with RC steering.
Wilesco D366 SR with RC steering/forward/reverse.
My newly upgraded Mamod SA1LBK Kit Limousine with RC steering.
Videos too follow of my engines performing tasks.
Thankyou for looking at my page, will update this.
Picture of my very small collection below.
Three toppers, and no mistake.
I look forward to the videos.
Yep, three nice ones there!
Three immaculate looking engines.
Three very nice mobiles
In any car forum, you will get comments going along the lines of "I like those wheel rims on the roadster- are they aftermarket, and where did you get them ?"
Three very nice mobiles, I especially like the limo.
Three really nice engines Abdul, you've done a great job with those boxes you were talking about adding - well done.
Three really nice engines, the RC showmans has to be my favourite.
Excellent. I love that limo.
Very nice Abdul. You may say only three engines, but they are
You say ONLY three but they are very good examples.
Don't forget we all had to start somewhere
very very nice, I love the showmans
Abdul, those are three classic examples, thanks for sharing. They look great together.
Three of my favourites, Abdul.
A great start to any collection.
Three top class engines, i've got the roller but would like the other two in my collection,
Great looking display !!!
Hi everyone, thankyou for the kind comments, very much appreciated.
Videos still too come. Filming was too happen today. Wanted too film outside, but a storm/lightning/rain has put a stop too that.
Videos are too be my engines under load, doing heavy haulage.
If the rain persists, I might just have to do it in the rain, or inside.
I'm guessing I have till tomorrow sometime at the latest?
Videos finally here. I apologize for the wait.
My three engines doing some towing/heavy haulage I'm actually in the videos this time.
Limo tows Showmans engine, 1st attempt.
See me scamper after it, tried to escape.
Limo tows Showmans engine, 2nd go.
Wilesco Showmans D409 + D366 Steam Roller, hauling a prime mover. 1st attempt.
2nd attempt with a wooden tractor on the trailer.
Finally the Showmans engine, attempting a hill climb.
I had a lot of fun today, Videos finally uploaded. A day of steaming, chasing them around, and yes those are shoe laces linking the engines.
If there are any issues with the videos, in terms of playability and quality, let me know. They seem too be playing ok, first one I uploaded, had some issues.
What great videos Abdul.
I'm really impressed by the heavy haulage double header and the fact that these machines can tackle such an incline.
A very impresive video demonstration of the power of a Wilesco mobile.At one stage it almost looked as though the Peugeot was about to be towed away.
3 nice mobiles you have there , and interesting to see them radio controlled .
It's always good to see heavy haulage in action. I think you've discovered how difficult it is to control more than one engine at a time!
