The rivets do it for me!

I know, bad Tom but I just don't understand why anyone would pay today's prices for a Mamod.

Be interesting to see whether it measures up to a Brunel size or steamer size. I'll stick to my traction engine although I quite like tram engines.

When I first saw this I assumed it to be a steam loco, and I was interested. From the comments, it appears to be electric, now I'm not...

I had a look but couldn't see the price of this one...? But I'd be very tempted by a Boulton if I had the cash.

If it's the same chassis as a Boulton, it'll be a good one. Hook it up with a repainted Newqida coach or scale-modded Upwell Wisbech coach...
