hard to believe, but 8 years have passed since I agreed
to assist Silver Crest Models in the design and testing
of their live steam models. It all started with a Gauge
3 Britannia and, at a controlled pace, I assisted our
suppliers to develop the engineering skills necessary
for them to manufacture sophisticated 5" and 7.25" gauge
models. Now we have built over 600 large scale live
steam models. Many more live steam models are in the
development pipeline with the mouth watering prospect of
the order book on these opening very soon. As an award
winning model engineer I am delighted to have been
involved with Silver Crest over the past years and look
forward to assisting them achieve their aim of continual
model improvement in the future."
"I have had several very good outings with the Jubilee.
I can now successfully fire the model and keep up steam
pressure, what a pleasure. On Sunday I was carrying
passengers for around three hours, it certainly does
steal the show".
