Electromagnetic Engine

Hello, my name is John Chapman. Since I was a lad in the fifties I have had an interest in things mechanical and steam powered machines in particular. Whilst researching steam engines I discovered the fascinating electromagnetic engines that were built in the early Victorian era. These devices were early attempts to create workable electric motors using the technology of the steam age.

Recently I have started to collect models of these interesting and little known machines. This site allows me to share my collection.

Thank you for visiting my web site, which I hope you find interesting.
