A nice item to own but not keen on the price :o

I used to have some steam valve identity discs (numbered 736 of course) which I polished up and glued to a cork base. These made fabulous  drinks coasters but I think I chucked them out :'(
I shall have to check in my parents loft to see if they're there.

I'd have strong doubts it is from the QE2. The date appears to be wrong (built into the serial number) and the reference to "736" looks like the standard to which the motor was built (normally where the British Standard Number would go were this not for nautical use), and surely not where the ship's build number would appear. Also, what is the supposed use to which this motor was put?

 At that price I would insist on proof that is real and not a made up fake.He say the came from her induction motors . John Brown would have most likely brought motors in from a suppler and they would not be unique to QE2. After the 1987 refit she had two unique 50MW drive motors. Ancillary motors for pumps lifts etc would not be made especially for QE2 they most likely came off the shelf from a supplier . Prior to 1987 I am not sure what system would require a 3Kv start voltage on 3 phase rated at 5351 HP?  may a fuel pump for her bunker fuel?
Were the BS on the plate is is were the standard to which the motor was made to . Also on the BS the 763 looks in a diffrent stamp from the rest. I am not say this is a fake but with the amount of fakes on ebay one has to be careful to make sure he is buying the real thing. To me this has a few question marks

It might be an idea to ask him a question and see where he obtained it?. Or at least see what proof he has over it.

I would if I was intending on buying it.
A motor plate form the 1960s  on a peace of varnished wood .I would not pay more than £10 to £20 for if it was real. Most of the stuff on ebay according to the sellers is rare and yet you see the same stuff week in week out. I have seen stuff sell on ebay for how much , look at the price the last bag of pic and mix from Woolworth went for. There are stores on the net to ? weather it was the last bag or not. You pay your money and take your choice. I went to China for work and the Fakes there were mine blowing in there quality from the perfect to the your having a laugh mate.

Its a two speed motor and is most probably from one of the boiler forced draft fans, there was one for each boiler and they would have one spare.

Yes of course, I've been trying to think of what that particular motor would have been used for (if indeed it is genuine). Thanks bulkhead stop.
On the subject of QE2 items that were ripped out during the big refit, I can remember one of the asst mechanics asking if he could take a large boiler room steam valve home. The answer was that if he could get it out and remove it from the ship he could keep it.
I'd love to know if he ever managed to do this.
If there is one item I'd have loved to own it would be one of the turbine blade sculptures that were for sale. I've seen one or two for sale on the www but at ridiculous prices.

Bob, just log in to .co.uk instead of the default .com you have in the USA then search the item number as normal.

In fact, searching the item numbers should work from the .com site anyway.

Got it, now I remember these curtains.  Unfortunatley, I only remember them through the brochures and not first hand viewing  :(

Ok hands up, l won the bed throw, but how or when l will ever use it is another matter, But it will be nice to go bed and be wrapped up in QE2.

If anybody has noticed the recent spate of QE2 badges, tie pins, postcards by the seller  Member ID a6789pottey   , these are excellent value, But it would be wise not to get into a bidding war, as quite probably the seller will make a second chance offer. If you recall how much these were sold for onboard, you will see what  a bargain these are.
 Going by his emails, l suspect he has  a lot to shift !!!

A good find, but some of the items seem overpriced...

Thanks Robert.  That site, however, is just an ebay aggregator - the aim of that site is simply to generate hits to itself.
