Mike does pay for this site himself I believe, he may have had enough, be ill or on holiday. The long delay does seem unlike hime though.

Yes, indeed, I used to put up a lot of the early content. sadly Ive been just too busy to stop and make the time to get some new stuff on there, as there are a few 'holes'.

We will miss his site very much, I hope he can start again.
It would be good to know what the problem is, perhaps we can help.

There are some big discussions about the toy steam bible on the other forum which I am no longer a member of. The guys are trying to contact Mike but had no response as yet. As fellow steamers lets hope something can be worked out to keep or start something afresh as its a good reference point to try and find out what our engines are.. Very Happy

I needs to be independent of any forum.

Letting some of those fools loose on it would ruin it, they would also only ensure they would have what they wanted on there, their chums and their choices... It has been independent up until now I see no reason why it should change.

Their knowledge too is sadly lacking in many areas of toy steam.
