I have a number of ME magazines and have come across the Croft mill Engine MK2 version.

I have three copies but unfortunately not the rest can anyone help with copies of the missing parts, I did look at back issues but could not find what I was looking for.

The three parts I have are

vol 188 No 4171 Part 4

vol 189 No 4175 Part 3

vol 189 No 4179 Part 5

The other thing I have noticed is that part 4 was published before part 3 which seemed a little strange.

Any help would be most helpful in either copies of the missing parts or pointing me as to where I can purchase them from

They are in the archives but unable to read them since Adobe pulled the plug.

It looks like it ran in 'odd' numbered issues from 4165 to 4179 (vols 188/9).. ..Ebay will be worth a go if you don't have any luck here.. ..prices vary, but a bit of patient looking and thinking will show the way, I'm sure..

There's a useful 'searchable' index of ME, MEW, and EIM articles here;

A useful link will keep that for future reference

Thank you to all for the suggestions and link most helpful now able to read the complete article. As mentioned before I would like to build beam engines and then a loco but in the meantime I found the croft engine and from what I have seen it could be the ideal starting point
