A Few Notes On My New Mamod Book

Today was an exciting day as I received the first ever copy to be printed and published of 'The Layman's Guide To Mamod Steam Engines'. I will not go on about how much time, effort and dedication went into this book but I will say that I am so glad a book like this is out there for people to gain knowledge about this truly great British live toy steam brand.

Book Published - The Layman's Guide To Mamod Steam Engines

After years of creating, I have finally bought out a book based solely about Mamod steam engines. Exciting, isn't it? Well, here is a complete look at the book for you to decide if you want to purchase it or not.

Fawley Hill Steam Festival 2014 with Pictures

I was lucky enough to go to the Fawley Hill Steam Charity Festival this year on Sunday 19th May 2014 and what a day it was! For all those that have a passion in steam engines, this is the festival to go to. Although you can go the whole weekend from Friday to Sunday, I only went on Sunday. Here is a glimpse at the things that happened on Sunday with a whole bunch of pictures of everything that I saw! Although it was for full-size steam engines, there was a section dedicated to model engines where I saw the one and only Mamod steam engine: an FE1 fire engine! Try and spot it in the below pictures:
  • There were camels!
  • The parachutist who dressed as the Queen for the London 2012 Olympics jumped from a helicopter and parachuted in.
  • There was air displays from a stunt plane and the two-seater Spitfire flown by Carolyn Grace.
  • Lots and lots of traction engines, steam wagons and cars!
  • A full-size train was running throughout the day.
  • There was a fun fair section with dodgems, wheel etc.
  • A live band playing throughout the whole day.
Also, for an update on the RestoringMamods.com book, I have currently completed around 60% of the book...it will be published soon!
