Side Tipping Lorry

Built by Jim MacCulloch

I have been looking at several model vehicles from the 1954-61 7 and 8 set manuals. I thought I would try the Side-tipping Lorry, model 7.8 in this manual, as it has an unusual tipping mechanism that I have not seen elsewhere. I have incorporated stee...

Twin-Cylinder Barring Engine

Built by Jim MacCulloch

This little construction is a piece of fun by way of experiment! I was aiming to simulate the twin-cylinder Barring Engine on the Waddon Cross-compound Steam Pumping Engine, as seen at the London Museum of Water and Steam (formerly Kew Bridge Steam M...
