Crab Fu sent in one of the best steam powered sites yet, he also detailed why -

#1 he’s got quite an amazing collection, make sure to look through all of the eye candy on his site, as well as a virtual walk-though display of his collection. The detailed info and history talks about every engine in detail, the information is incredible. Check out the Kerstan balls (which deserves their own blog, will submit some detail for you about them later on ) – straight out of Steamboy eh? and the huge collection of old Jensen engines.

#2 How many people buy toys steam engines from ebay, receive their first cheap, broken, old steam engine, and wonder where to begin to get it back to running condition… or how to restore them and getting them back to pristine shape…. well here ya go – lots of tips and tricks, info, how-to’s…. just look at his engines, and the transformations from junks to better than new :)
