Many thanks for your friendly welcome last week, and for your presentation of the models. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and It was very interesting to hear the history of the development of atmospheric engines and their important part in the development of the industrial revolution. I certainly came away with the feeling that I had met no ordinary man ! With very best wishes, John Ogbourne President Rotary Club of Eccleshall Mercia

Model-making virtuosity gone mad! An incredible achievement with a pathological attention to detail! These must be among the best models anyone has ever produced.

David, I am just updating my 1/16th scale Watt 10HP from Plug-Tree operation to slide valve. My references for most of the model, of course from your book on rotative engines. Although I have visited many beam-engine sites I still come back to your book for info. Amazing? No! Long may you keep us informed. Regards Tony.
