Vintage Mamod steam powered engine toy, made in England. This has has obviously been well used, as the base is heat discolored, but the reservoir seems to be very solid, no corrosion, as are the steel parts. The mechanism, the wheel and piston, turn freely and you can feel the compression in the piston bore. It is missing the fuel tray that slides in and out and holds what I assume is some sort of solid fuel, but this could be easily made or substituted.
Displays well, brass has a nice patina. Base is about 5 1/2 long. Not tested, but no reason to think that it wouldn't work. Check out our other items!
