I had the impression that there have been far too many Wilesco items in the forum. What do you think? Please answer frankly.

In terms of representation proportional to quality, I am inclined to say yes...

Not to much Wilesco`s in my opinion. Dont understand the issue really.

I think all brands, models and themes brought into the forum is purely a "gift" to us all.  All the postings made on this forum are at times in sutch quantities, that it is hard to keep up. If anyone not have interest in fx Wilesco, they dont have to read about it.

Klaus: You are among the top collectors of wisdom, experiences and models of Wilesco. I for one; love to read your threads about these gems.

Not at all,

I would say it is better to have 20 new members with Wilesco's than non at all.

Also, Wilesco are a company that are expanding their range and developing new ideas. That is a good thing and the only way forward for the hobby.

It has been clearly seen that they have invested in new machinery, laser and CNC cutting technology and new designs, lets be right about it that little D2 is a classic engine even now and it's only a few months old in Steam engine longevity. New investment and machinery, this has to be the only way forward.

The steam toy hobby needs Wilesco as much as it needs us the consumer.

If they stopped using so much plastic,'valves, wheels on the Mighty Atom tractor' etc ,people would buy a lot more, I would anyway, it's a false economy. No there are not too many Wilesco's on the forum.

A Wilesco is a steam engine. This is a steam engine forum. You can't have too many steam engines on a steam engine forum.
