jmohme Posted February 15, 2022 Share Posted February 15, 2022 Since an early age, I have had an interest in steam power. Not so much steam locomotives, although I do like them too, but more agricultural and industrial steam. Both stationary and traction engines. I was 12 or thirteen when my father gave me a Mamod Jr steam engine for Christmas. That was the beginning of what would be a very extensive collection of antique toy steam engines. Unfortunately they were all lost when my home was lost in the 2011 Texas wildfires. In the year following I really had little interest in rebuilding that collection but then my wife found one that she gave me for Christmas, and so it began again. This is a picture I took this morning of my current assortment of toy steam engines and accessories. Not nearly the quantity as the lost collection but some really nice pieces (and some partials). 12 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
