The International Steam Pages

Stationary Steam Video Clips

Now, I have started to add Indian Stationary Steam Videos to my YouTube channel (latest addition 11th January 2014).

Click here for the guest video clip home page.

If you would like to contribute to this section of the international steam website please email y (this is not a link you have to retype the address) - we need approx 320 x 240 video clips (normally 'wmv' format, 1 to 3Mb file size.

Our own clips on these pages are taken from present and
future ISV DVDs. These are properly researched quality documentary films with a story to tell.
'National Geographic Stuff' said one purchaser.

We also offer industrial archaeology compilation DVDs from our travels to steam powered mills in Asia.

South of Moulmein (Mawlamyine) in Burma (Myanmar) is the village of Dakhondaing which has just one active rice mill powered by this Tangye steam engine, built around 1900.

Here we visit a rice mill in Thailand (24th April 2007):

The second offering (22nd March 2007) is from our travels in Burma (Myanmar) and shows an old stationary steam engine in a brand new rice mill in the north of the country. The plate shown is from the importing agent, just who made it originally is not known:
