It is with much regret that the NSCA has learned of the sad passing of long-time member Nick Moffat.
Our thoughts are with Tina Moffat at this sad time.

Nick's funeral will be held at 12 noon on July 31st at the Bournemouth Crematorium.

Our thanks to Sally-Ann Dod for advising us.





The Railway Magazine

Robert Fielding sent us a copy of The Railway Magazine from 1959 with the picture (above) of a steam car built in 1903 by A G Ainslie. Mr Ainslie worked for the firm of Kitson's, who built railway locomotives.

Three such cars were built using the same type of boiler to be found in American steam cars. The firetubes had a welded barrel with flanged ends to which two tube plates were secured. There were 150 tubes of 5/8" outside diameter which transmitted the heat from a paraffin burner beneath and a superheater above.

There was a Klingen glass water gaugen fitted with an oil lamp for night driving.
Thanks, Robert, for sending an interesting article.
