During the 19th century, steam was the primal and most important source for machinery and vehicles. Besides steam-powered vehicles, mechanics developed clockwork machinery. Interesting and very usefull machinery were the result of the developing.


The miners are mining in the Endarmire Iron Mine. They’re searching for iron. The mechanics use the iron to build (mining) machinery. The Endarmire Iron Mine is a large mine, which contains lots of iron and other ores.

In the workshop, three mechanics are assembling clockwork drones. The drones going mining for iron. A large mineshaft brings the miners and drones into the mine. The conveyor belt brings the crates, filled with iron, outside the mine. The conveyor belt and mine shaft are motorized.

In the center of the layout is a ore-cruncher. There are two docks for flying transport vehicles.

I just stumbled over your topic and am surprised nobody has commented on it yet - because this is simply amazing stuff!:thumbup: I love steampunk and your build really ticks all the boxes. So lush and despite its imposing size still skilfully detailed! My highest respect to you. This is really brilliant work.:classic: How long did it take you to plan and build it?

Last year, I've expanded my Steampunk layout with som extra buildings, like a second Steam workshop. In this workshop, steam-powered mining vehicles were build. Also a harbor with a dock for boats and airships.

And I've added some new vehicles, such as tracked mining units, a large mining and transport unit and a steamboat.

Didn't see this last year, so thanks for updating the thread.

Tremendous work here. And it looks as busy as you undoubtedly were creating it.

This small walking  mining unit will be used in the iron mines. It has a drill which will be used to chop iron ore. This vehicle is part of the Endarmire Iron Mine.
