Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Mamod company is a British toy manufacturer specializing in building live steam models. The company was founded in 1937 in Birmingham in the British midlands by Geoffrey Malins. The name is a contraction of 'Malins Models'. The first models produced were of stationary steam engines, the company later also creating models of road rollers, traction engines and steam cars. These models were aimed at the toy market, so were simple to operate and ran at low boiler pressures for safety but were not accurate scale models. The TE1/TE1a traction engine remains the most popular model Mamod ever produced, selling no fewer than 486 thousand models up to 1996. The most popular stationary engine was the Minor, selling roughly 245,000 models, until its retirement in 1979.show more
