The Corgi Toys miniature of the Studebaker Golden Hawk has undergone a change, the colour scheme being Baltic blue with gold flash for the free-running model (Ref. 211) and white with gold flash to distinguish the mechanical model (Ref. 211M).

Live Steam! I am extremely fond of traction engines but I never expected to steam my own. Yet one Saturday in January this was just what we did. Warm water having been fed into the boiler until it ran out through the level plug and the piston, big-end and bearings having been lubricated with heavy Castrol engine oil, the fire was lit and in just over 1 3/4-minutes steam was up and, after a few...
