Dear all,

I was hoping you could help clear up an annomally I came accross the other day.
Now we are all well aware of the standard Mamod and MSS 0 gauge steam loco,With double acting oscillating cylinders on the front.
Recently I saw a Commercially produced Mamod engine with fixed cylinders and Corliss rotary valves operated by rods from the wheels!!
I know you can get better pistons and seal kits for the MSS/Mamod engine.
Another Mamod engine I saw had fixed cylinders but instead of the Corlis valves it had eccentrics inside the frame.

I have checked with the Mamod site and the MSS site but they seem to be selling the same old usual c**p.

The two that I saw with the new valve gear types were advertised for sale on the internet through various people,I wonder if they are an export only model?

I'd love to know,Stew.

Is it possible that they are models worked on by other companies for better appearance/more efficient working, and just using the Mamod as a base?
