Steam Engines, Cars, Boilers and Parts


Tom's Collection

Tom has collected steam engines, vehicles and their parts. We will be attempting to put photos of all of his collection on this page. Each engine, boiler, vehicle or part comes with a discription and possibly other pieces of materials or links to give you as much information as possible.

Almost 150 entries so far just in Tom's Steam Collection with just under 50 entries of those that belong to "Others". And, there are still more to come.

  Tom Kimmel's collection of Steam Engines-Keen Steamliner No. 2

Please come back as we keep adding more pieces.

After Tom's Collection below, we have added steam engines, boilers, steam vehicles and such that belong to others in an attempt to give the researcher a complete as possible look into steam.

Check out Tom's huge Steam Library as well.
