Who are these strange fellows?

Manbench Industries; Purveyors of general mayhem since 1994, a blog to follow the crazed, possibly deranged projects and emotive musings, of an undergraduate engineer, and an apprentice organ builder who have always felt they were born in the wrong age. Follow us as we, re-write history, learn lost skills, discover strange new worlds, break things, rant at things, mend things, make new things and generally find ways of passing the day instead of doing "proper work" !

Maxitrak 1" Scale Atkinson Wagon Part II

As usual, the part II of the post jumps ahead a *little* bit as I am generally too eager to get something up together and running...

Anyway, after various problems, I got wagon number one working. To celebrate, I decided to steam it up and take her for a run up through the village up to The Carpenters house - a round trip of 1/2 a mile, done on two fillings - not a bad run at all!

A re-fueling cart - gas tank on a Mamod wagon. 

The Carpenter!

A brilliant plume of steam.

As you can probably see, there is still the requirement for some form of bodywork, so you will see some progress on this wagon.

Also, there is the second wagon to go together, so I'll try record the rebuild of that one a little more closely. 

Unfortunately, the wagon will not be at Steam Toys In Action tomorrow, as the train back from university has a replacement coach service and I don't fancy putting her in the underbelly of the bus!

The Engineer.
