Mr. Elmer Verburg and his steam engine designs

Dedicated to the memory of Curly Lawrence "LBSC"

LBSC was the pen name of Curly Lawrence, one of the United kingdom's best known and most prolific model steam engine locomotive designers.

Curly Lawrence was born on the 27th of September in 1883. LSBC published 113 Steam Engine Related Designs and drafted 29 unpublished designs.

He died on 4 November 1967 having made his last contribution to Model Engineer Magazine only one month before.

Should any entity disagree with LBSC's plans being made available for the public on this site, please contact me

I have succesfully rejected a copyright claim from the present owners of "Model Engineer" who have failed to produce evidence of holding the copyright for any of LBSC's plans which were published in "The Model Engineer" Please note the difference !!!!- I invite any entity to contact me if they feel that they can prove ownership of the copyright!!!!
