Lots of pictures from May 20th here, lots of videos too. Some I will post here and the rest you can see at my YouTube area.

We stopped at the Goldfields Railway in Waihi on the way home and were in time to see the train coming in from the last run of the day. We were allowed into the engine shed to see the steam loco in there, a 1938 Peckett.

My new traction engine models

Today, Dad gave me his model Mamod traction engines that he bought about 1977.


They need a good clean and the roller has a leaking boiler.
