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 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.
