Post Good Afternoon from North Hertfordshire

Thank you for accepting me into your forum.

My interest in Stationary Engines, actually stems from my interest in the products of D Wickham & Co. Ltd of Ware, Hertfordshire.

I run the Wickham of Ware Facebook, Flickr & Yahoo! Groups and this has led me to form The Rail Trolley Trust (, however to properly tell the story of Wickhams, my study and indeed collecting now encompasses other equipment they manufactured.

I have so far purchased a Ruston & Hornsby 1VTH powered Lift & Flush Pump, a JAP 2A powered Lift & Flush Pump and most recently a Villiers powered Lift & Flush Pump. I also have a Lister / Petter powered Wickham Genie Pump.

Welcome aboard from another rail enthusiast, I think I traveled every mile of rail on the IOM during the 90's and will have to look if I took any photo's of the Wickham trolley during my visits.

If you can't fix it with a hammer, it's an electrical problem.
