MISSING SMOKESTACK AND SCREW PIECE BUT Works! PLASTIC HANDLE WHISTLE PIECE PARTIALLY MELTED. This was a lot of fun to test. Bought the tablets and gave it a go, takes a little tinkering to figure it out.
The smokestack is aesthetic only BUT the important missing piece is a screw to block steam from coming out on the wheel portion. I used a piece of wood and pushed it down to get the wheel to spin, and it really gets going once it starts. Adjust the whistle lever to release some pressure or keep it closed to give full power to the wheel. It could use a deep clean, would be a cool restoration piece. I think it's missing a ladder and maybe other pieces but it's basically functional as is.
If any questions I'll try to answer them! I lubed it up and like I said includes fuel tablets!
