Some Steam Car Photos from 2018
Spring City Steam Works' recently purchased Mason Steam Car, in steam for the first time in their ownership. A leak was found in the steam generator,18" deep in the combustion chamber and repairs are now in hand.

Through Steam Car Network, I was contacted by Jamie and Charley Allen, as they were having a few problems with their newly acquired 1899 Locomobile, and had yet to try their 1925 Stanley which they had acquired at the same time, the latter joint owned by Charley's brother, Adam Brown. So a day was spent going through a few things on both cars, and by the end of the day they were able to be steamed successfully, the Locomobile in particular running very well. It proved to be a very enjoyable day for all, and I am glad I could help in some way.

It is with great sadness that I have to report the passing of Steve Baldock on the 1st November 2018. Steve was very well known within the steam world, both for his superb miniature traction engines, and, latterly, for the rebuilding of two Beautiful 1909 Stanley Model R's. He was someone who was always willing to give help and assistance wherever he could, and will be sorely missed. Our condolences go out to his family and friends.

Hello I'm Robert Balfour from Australia. I have a Model Z Stanley built by Carl Amsley. I am looking for some 14 inch brake drums for the car. Would anyone know from whom I could obtain these?
Thank You. My email is email@example.com.

It is with great sadness to report that Arthur Thompson passed away earlier this week. Arthur was a well known and respected member of the steam fraternity world wide, owner of a White steam car on which he was an authority.
He will be missed.
