Lindy and I are in Burnley, Lancashire. Over 50, but not actually Victorians  ;D

Heading out for a steam train ride next week in our 'practical' Victorian-esque outfits. Still putting all the 'extras' together.

Possibly saw a couple of you at the annual Steampunk Weekend at Queen Street Mill a fortnight ago?

So many wonderful new people!

It is heart warming to see so many finding joy in the simple pleasures we have to offer here.

You are of course extremely welcome. There is tea, many types. Scones and of course G&T or maybe the odd 10 year old port if you fancy something stronger.

And please remember there are no archetypes, we are all as valid as each other. Our angles of approach and orbits maybe different, the gravity well is uncaring but constant.

All is well. :D

Welcome.

Here old fruit...!

First post, hailing from Suffolk on the mighty river Deben as it thunders toward the sea...!
Well old chap... it'll either do frightful damage to the enemy, or untold harm to you...!

There's only one way to find out...!

Good Afternoon.
I am new to this wonderful world, however have been immersed in the world of Steam Punk from Mr Verne's writings via Mr Reeve to Mr Stephenson's Diamond Age.
I am most interested in land transportation of all types, my current fixation being modifications to Model T Fords for speed and excitement.. Wink
I am developing my alter-ego of tinkering gentleman-racer and reading voraciously.
I currently reside in a fair coaching village just south of Durham in the darkest North East of England.
I spend a lot of time up at Beamish, a Steamy Heaven implanted into the modern world.
Kindest regards and Salutations,
P Norris Esq

Here from the east end of London

Cor blimey..luvva duck, guv'nor..another Eastender! Where abouts? I'm in Hackney
Well, Well, Well, we're virtually next door - I'm over in Walthamstow

I'm a few miles over in Essex. Hornchurch near the Kent border to be precise. There seems to be a fair few of us East Londoners. Hope we're all going to be meeting at the London Steampunk Spectacular on January 23rd.

Can I admit to having origins in the East End - E10 Leyton

up in County Durham now.....the former county of many many coal pits....now none..and apparently very few steampunks either
