New Member from Notts UK

I want to introduce myself on this forum. I live in Nottinghamshire UK. (Notts) with a considerable interest in Diesel Engines, especially those formerly made by Ruston and Hornsby Ltd in Lincoln, England and in the excavators made by that company and its successor Ruston-Bucyrus also located in Lincoln.

Currently I am trying ultimately to produce a model 19-RB excavator, to include a Diesel engine of my own making. I believe my workshop is sufficiently comprehensive to allow me to make a reasonable attempt at this ambition.

I came to this forum in a search for any information I could find about R and H engines and found that there had been some interest and knowledge of these amongst  various postings. I also now understand why any time I bought any manual, parts list or instructional material off ebay most came from Australia.

Before anybody suggests that I am too ambitious, I already know this is going to be a long haul, forum members might care to search out on the Model Engine Maker forum the work in the US  of a member there (Chris) Crueby who has nearly completed a scale model of a Marion steam shovel over some 290 constructional postings.,7530.0.html

I am sure you will admire his patience and dedication.

Finally may I thank members for allowing me to join your forum. I feel my next posts will be requests for information and probably any pictures that can be shared.
