"I made 576
engines in that year  They were the worst I ever made"
I love this quotation, it was made by Geoffrey Malins the founder of Mamod
In which he is describing the steam engines he made for Hobbies of Dereham
They may me the worst he ever made, but they are now the
Rarest and most desirable of all
In the photograph above you will see one of the engines
Which Geoffrey Malins made, the Hobbies SE3
And on the Mamod 1 page you will see another of Geoffrey's creations
The Hobbies SE4 both date to 1937.
Toy steam engines
are my hobby and my passion
And through this little bit of web space
I want to share them with you, each and every one
So please feel free to have a look around my website
And when you have finished browsing
Why not leave a comment in my Guestbook
Many thanks Mike.
