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.

Test firing the Stanley steamer this afternoon, after cleaning main and pilot burners ready for The Brooklands Reunion on Sunday. She's all prepared and ready to go now.

Both the 1900 Mobile and 1923 Stanley passed their boiler inspections yesterday. Now Ready for another year's steaming!
Despite rain we all enjoyed an excellent route in excellent cars.
We left Melle on day 3 and headed towards a new hotel, 60 miles away, through beautiful countryside with beautiful weather.
Glorius weather accompanied a brilliant route for today’s run. The majority of the cars ran very well through the beautiful countryside around Melle.
Day 1 commenced at 10am, with great weather and great cars. 30 plus cars are attending, 9 steamers with the rest being Internal Combustion Engined cars. 7 Brits attended along with their cars.

The Dordt in Stoom event in Holland has begun. A number of steam cars are present, including 3 from England.
Cleaning cleaning cleaning. What a wondrous job an ultrasonic tank and citrinox does for cleaning this 100 year old stuff!! 2 more pump shaft to make and start assembling!
Not a ton of work but progress is progress. Chromed water pumps rods are fully assembled. Need a new fuel piston and support slider yet. And a bunch more cleaning.
The car hit some sunlight today! The dash went back in after the windshield frame repair a while ago. The kidney gauge is back installed. A bunch of things cleaned up and working on mounting the condenser to see how plumbing will fit. We are making progress now!
Billings Cooke Writes "Took a "field trip" with the local SACA chapter to the Orange Historical Society. Saw two Grouts and got a bit of information for Tilly."
