MessageMany thanks for posting all this fascinating material and information.

What years are your Bond's catalogues? I am interested to know when the "Bonzone" loco first appeared.

Cheers
Martin

MessageHello,
I just found this website whilst going through Mainstream Models website. Thought I would drop by to see what you have. Will have to come back as it is time for some shut-eye here, but I definitely want to see what you have.
I am just a newby in the mini steam category, with a Wilesco D6 Steam Engine.
Looking forward to watching your videos.
Thanks a lot.

MessageIt was indeed this website and the page "Restoration, Technical Tips" that made me confident enough to buy a Bowman E135 and a Bowman M140 Workshop Engine with long drveshaft, both incomplete and in rather decrepit state. Both are back in shape now, and while I have not yet tested the E135, the M140 is a fantastic powerful runner!

Thank you, Mooseman! smilie

MessageMy Grandfather worked at Bowmans until WW2 started, he was put into a reserved occupation as a spark plug inspector in charge of a factory full of women despite the fact he wanted to fight. His house in Lowestoft was bombed and he and his family were evacuated to Shrewsbury where he worked at the Sentinel until he retired. His name was Daniel Francis Norman. As an interesting sideline to this story my Grandmother once had to shelter in a shop doorway in Lowestoft when she was out shopping with my Mum (still a baby), as a German fighter plane strafed the street. My Grandmother would often recall this lucky escape and the sight of the bullets rattling off the pavement.

MessageVery nice website!

I like Bowmnan steam, too. Please take a look at my videos:

First my Bowman 300. It was modified by a previous owner so that steam exhausts through the chinmey. Nice powerful little runner!

Test run at home:

Then, my Bowman 234. First, running with two of the six wicks covered:

Meanwhile, I have added some further ballast on the burner tank. So, when its train becomes too heavy, it's driving wheels will not skid but the loco will simply stop. Here is what a Bowman 234 does when really working at the edge of power:

My first Bowman stationary engine, a M175, is on the way to me! smilie

Best regards from Germany,
Jörg
