Steam Engines Overview

Cotswold Heritage Model Steam Engine Collection.

Cotswold Heritage Model Steam Engine Collection.

The fascination of steam transcends all ages and backgrounds, quite what actually derives so much pleasure from seeing an engine run varies, but of one fact we can be sure - it's great fun! So how do you make a start?

The traditional route to owning and running a model steam engine beyond those which may be classed as toys has in general required the acquisition of some engineering skills and use of machinery. Now as an option Cotswold Heritage offer engines in both machined kit and fully finished form. Whilst the kits eliminate the need for machinery and specialist skills they do offer a challenge and on completion result in working models compatible with the factory finished versions, either type able with additional products to run on steam or compressed air.






Factory Finished Model Steam Engines
With the exception of the kits for Model Engineers to machine, Cotswold Heritage offer all of their models in fully factory finished ready to run form.
Each model is hand built to the highest standards and fully tested by our skilled craftsmen. In most cases there is a choice of colour and we are always happy to discuss special requirements when building factory finished to order.
