    I came across this website looking for steel mill images, and find the work absolutely amazing. These models are all carved wood and ivory, and the level of detail appears outstanding. If I ever find myself in Ohio, I'll have to make a trip to the museum to see in person:

    Wow. That is just AMAZING work! I can't even fathom having the patience, fortitude and skill to spend 9+ months or more carving a steam engine. :eek:

    I knew of the model of B&O 5800, but never knew who made it.
