Lot's of members and enthusiasts ask us at shows and events about certain elements of the club/website. So here is a little guide to answer a few of the most common questions and hopefully encourage you to use some of the resources we have on offer.

The Steam Car Club Forum

The Steam Car Club hosts its very own forum where like-minded individuals can talk to fellow enthusiasts about their car, their plans, events and all about steam. - in fact you can talk about anything else too in the Forum. You can go to the forum by clicking on the relevant links around the site, there is one over on the left menu bar. Or you can go direct to the forum by clicking this link:
The Forum
If you are ARE A MEMBER OF THE CLUB and wish to post an item or reply to someone else's, you can join. Joining is simple - fill in your details, a relevant username and the process will start

However, to stop the recent increase of Spam on the forum, we now manually approve all new members prior to their first posting. So to help us, help you - SEND US AN EMAIL stating your Username and a brief reason to join to and this will help speed up the process.

Once you have registered and been approved take a look at the "Sticky' post
at the top of the page. This gives great help how to post links to pictures or videos.

The Steam Car Club on Facebook
The Steam Car Club has a Facebook account, and again here you can talk to people all over the world, upload pictures, advertise an event near you or contribute in anyway you would like. We use the Facebook page to add lots of photos of recent events and remind everyone of forthcoming events.

Our Facebook page can be found by clicking here:

If you are a Facebook member, please support the page by 'liking it', if you do not have a Facebook account why not set one up, it's free and simple to do.

The Steam Car Club on Youtube
The Steam Car Club has a Youtube channel which it uses to post videos. We then put the videos on the Steam Car Club website. If the video you wish to watch looks a little small, for instance the ones on the front page of the website top left, you can click on the small icon on the bottom right to enlarge the video to full screen size. If you are a member of Youtube, you can leave a comment on the Youtube website and rank the video either good or bad.

Latest News
We will endeavour to add to the 'Latest News' page on the website any news items so this area is very useful indeed. You can find the latest news via the left hand menubar or by clicking here:Latest News

Send Us News
We love to hear from you and really appreciate news about you, your car or any other news that you think fellow members may enjoy hearing about too. We may use your news in our club magazine!! Send your news to: or click on the Editor link on the home page of the website.

Steam Car Register
We are currently compiling a comprehsive Steam Car register - a list of cars from Stanleys to Whites, to Locomobiles, Lykamobiles and every kind of steam powered vehicle we can find. For which, we need you help. If you can tell us details of a vehicle that you think isn't on the list - or add any details to cars that are, drop us a line and let us know -

...and Finally - join the club

To get the full benefit of the Steam Car Club, then join the Steam Car Club! Annual membership can be a great way of meeting people and sharing a passion for steam and steam cars. The form can be found here:Membership Form simply print it out and send it off to our Membership Secretary.

On your You Tube links, how do we get videos added from the more general You Tube?
For instance, I would like added to the list of suggested You Tube videos (already on You Tube) "Whistling Billy RRH Portreath" and "2012 Aug Whistling Billy running at Stithians".

These two videos could also be added as a link on the front page "Whistling Billy" section which now needs an update also - but I do not know how to do that either!
