This title gives a fascinating survey of the different kinds of toy steam engines of the stationary type, and especially those produced during the heyday of steam toys between 1900 and 1930. Dealing mainly with the German manufacturers, the pioneers of the mass-produced steam toys, it explains how the engines work, gives advice about operating and maintaining them and contains useful information about identifying and dating vintage models. The manufacturers and retailers who played a leading part in the production and distribution of steam toys are described, and a brief reference is made to manufacturers who are still making toy steam engines. This will be an excellent reference book for steam enthusiasts of all ages.

About the Author:

The enchanting world of steam captured the imagination of Bob Gordon when, as a boy, he spent Saturday mornings stoking a Cornish boiler in a steam-powered laundry. Ever since then he has had an affinity with steam and a love of the evocative smell of hot oil and coal smoke. Nowadays he keeps his love of steam alive by operating toy steam engines and driving model steam locomotives on his garden railway, Mr. Gordon has also written Early Electrical Appliances and Model Steam Engines in this series.
