Chiltern Model Steam Gallery and Testimonials

TestimonialsFrom our customers

The beam engine... what can I say. It’s perfect.... thank you for creating such a wonderful, “affordable” model! I say affordable, because in the past, I’ve looked at the Stuart Beam engine, and without Lathes and mills etc to machine the rough casting, it’s out of reach of the novice engineer... until I met you and your products" - IanL on buying the Beam Engine

WOW what a beautiful piece of engineering can’t wait to see it running. - RobJ on buying Mill Single

The mill engine arrived tonight, and I can only say BRILLIANT!! I'm so pleased with the engine, and will look at it properly in daylight. Packaging superb, your service has been exemplary plus you are such a nice person to deal with. "Thanks" barely seems adequate, so a big THANK YOU!!!...., I will be back to order a twin mill engine :) - StewartK on buying Mill Single


Just a brief note to say a massive thank you for your contribution to our steam event last weekend. Your engines brought delight to everyone who built one and I hope that they will feature prominently in Blists Hill’s future. I estimate a good 200 – 250 visitors took part: around 80 children plus assistant family members - Hugh Simmons, Education Manager, Blists Hill, Victorian Town, Ironbridge
