Title: Book Wanted - STEAM by E C Reid J C Renshaw
Post by: lynx42 on 06 February, 2013, 09:59:20 am
Wanted to purchase. The above mentioned book. Titled STEAM by E C Reid J C Renshaw.

I have an 1879 J J Seeking and Co, Semi-portable engine which won the Best Portable at the 2010 Echuca Steam Rally.

I would like to get my ticket and I have been told that this book is a requirement for the course. ((That is if I can find a course to do.)

Thanks Rick.

The copy of the book you are chasing on ebay is listed for $548.  I'd say you've seen that looking at the picture attached to your post.

My suggestion would be to find and enrol in a course first.  Then you will be sure to buy the correct textbooks.

Melbourne Steam Traction Engine Club host Training courses.
There was a note in a recent newsletter looking for enough people to
run a course. If it is being run by the same training group as before
that book is desirable rather than essential. It has been out of print
for 30 years. There are other books by the same authors too.
The book in eBay has been appearing for 2 years.
Hugely over priced - l got mine for $70.

Hope this helps. Steve

Make that a PM - apparently I get notification from the forum in my email.
