Just for a change

I make no apology for featuring so much new Meccano at this time of year, but at the moment it seems to be never ending. Partly because of the huge amount of publicity surrounding the G15 and G15 KS. If you don't know what that is then where have you been? Look HERE if you really don't know!

Enough of the new stuff for now, do you remember this?

Steam wagon and 1929 vertical boiler engine
Well, since I built that we have acquired a 1930 set No.6. At the time the second largest set available and much larger than the later No.6 from the 0 - 10 progressive sets range of post war.

The pre-war set in the condition we received it
It occurred to me it would be interesting to build another Steam Wagon from contemporary parts. The first job will be to check the set and see exactly what we have bought. Then collect together enough parts to build the Steam Wagon, clean and polish them and start building...
