Steam Engine/ Manic Monday: BOIL

(Odd Shots is the post below.)

Here's an antique steam engine run by steam. You BOIL water to make steam, right? ;-)
And here's a view of the other side. Both sides (tee hee) photographed at the Uxbridge-Scott Museum in Uxbridge, Ontario.

By the way, some of you have comment boxes that I cannt use. I work on a Mac, and although I've tried three different browsers, I cannot leave comments. TINK, your blog is one of them.

These are simply awesome! Intriguing! Weird! Fantastic! Like giant size toys! Love them!

Wonderful entry! Sorry you aren't able to use the comment boxes. I have friends that blog on Macs that aren't having any troubles. Some use IE, some use Firefox 3.0. Maybe you should try upgrading your browsers to the latest versions to see if that helps/

What I think is funny is the subdivision in the background.

This reminds me of childhood when my parents would take us to steam engine exhibits. I can hear it! Very nice picture.

I agree. That's why I decided to make sure I said the photo was taken at a museum! ;-)

Must be something wrong with your settings on your Mac. I got one and it works in Safari and FireFox. Is your settings wrong.

This is an excellent photograph of an engine like those used around here during World War II. They used them to power things the big engines could run.

Boil works. You have to make a fire somewhere though. Great shot of the museum piece. MB

Thanks for your input. I'll investigate further.

I too am unable to leave comments at Tink's blog and I use a PC with firefox and I have tried IE. I don't know what it is, but I give up.

Sometimes it's more trouble than it's worth with all the numbers, letters etc and I have some fine motor issues due to my MS.

I think if you moderate the comments,, you could skip all the numbers etc.

Oh my, I am on a rant. I am so sorry...Michelle

Hi. Very creative boil! I don't know what the problem is with the comment boxes. When you user Blogger hosted at, you don't really have a lot of control over things.

Does it happen to you more with the pop-up comment boxes, or more with the ones that leave the front page of the blog and take you to a whole comments page?

Beautiful photos. I am a Computer Animation art student who is modeling an antique steam engine for a class project. I was doing research online and came across your photos of the red antique steam engine at the Uxbridge-Scott Museum. I am trying to find an image of the front trailer section of this steam engine to study how to model it. Do you have a photo of the front section of the steam engine that I could look at?
