A present the collection consists of several workshop combinations, namely the Mamod no1 and no2 workshops, consisting entirely of traditional Mmaod tools. Also an early brass wheeled set up is attached to the SE4 utilising a Meccano chassis, also on a simple chassis of Meccano are the Bowman M135 and 'doll' type 839 type dynamo. Lastly the 1953 Mamod Minor 2 is attached to another Meccano chassis holding a 1953 flat base lineshaft and pre-war Mamod/Hobbies polisher. Further workshops are planned using English steam engines and tools. A Wilesco set up may be formed in the future, using the D455 vertical engine.
