MODEL ENGINES in the cage at the GEELONG SHOW
The following short videos show some of the engines on display by GSMEE in the Vintage Machinery Shed at the recent Geelong Show. GSMEE is Geelong Society of Model and Experimental Engineers. All engines are running on steam, except of course the Stirling engine, the Farmboy, and the Atkinson engine.
These engines will be running again at the GSMEE exhibition 25-26 Nov 2017, at The Lifestyle Pavillion, The Geelong Showgrounds. Several scale model traction engines, trade exhibits, outside entries, and the engines in the Vintage Machinery Shed will also be on show. The Hatherly Challenge competition will be judged. This year the challenge is to make a reversing horizontal mill engine. Entry is free (gold coin donation accepted with gratitude).

I wish we had a Society of Model and Experimental Engineers or some organization like it out here in Hawaii that had shows like yours. I watched all your videos, some a few times. Though I admire their static beauty, it is exciting to see the machines in motion and watch their intricate movements. Thank you for posting them!
Great to have some positive feedback Richard. Thanks!
Oh, and congratulations on the award. Maybe you’ll get first place when it is up and steaming!
