The 'Freesteam' forum
Lets not dance around! this forum has been established for over 10 years and is devoted not only to toy steam engines but full sized road, rail and marine steam, and basically covers all aspects of the world of steam.  It is simply the best and has established a dedicated following, and maintains it position as one of the most respected and authoritative steam forums to be found anywhere on the net. 
The "Freesteam" name reflects the free and open culture encouraged by all who use the forum, free of overburdening rules and inept overweight moderators and inexperienced clueless administrators in abundance on some modelsteam forums. 

Here is a testimonial from one very happy member:

"... I did join the other forum initially, as I had not been made aware of this forum. 

However, I consider this to be much the better forum in terms of maturity of membership, quality of replies, and it is the one I now support. 

I have particularly enjoyed the articles on your replica Bowman boats. 

So basically a message of support..."

If there are any questions regarding the forum, please contact me at any time. THE forum for steamers who know their 'onions' and want to share information and advice with sensible collectors and enthusiasts.
Please use the link above to find out what you could be part of. With over 280 members and nearly 70,000 relevant posts we may not be the biggest but we keep it real and 'on topic' . . .  and more importantly we would like YOU to be part of our community NOW!
