I have often thought about where other forum members steam their beloved engines. I steam mine in my little man cave otherwise known as my shed. Where do you steam yours.. Very Happy

I steam my engines at both houses we own. I keep all my English engines in once place and the Wilesco engines at the other place. I steam engines in the kitchen or atop my big old A0 drawing board/desk.

Spare room mostly, the 'bench' is an old IKEA dressing table with the mirror removed. The news paper on the wall is oil splash protection for the wall!!
