“Every Boy His Own Manufacturer”
« on: November 15, 2018, 04:07:38 PM »
I recently discovered the book “Every Boy His Own Manufacturer”,  published in 1872, thanks to an old thread being woken up on another forum.
The thread contained the link to get the book:
I downloaded the book and started drawing up plans to the locomotive “Lightning” described in it. So far I have 9 parts drawn.
Has anyone else downloaded this book and drawn or built this loco?

Don't know if it is the same series or publisher, but my dad had a set called "Every man his own Mechanic" which comes up on google with a lot of references, this is the archive,   dated 1891.
Man who says it cannot be done should not disturb man doing it!
