This popular edition from the Wilesco range includes numerous deluxe features, including a boiler equipped with safety valve, chain-style whistle, pressure gauge, drain tap with syphon and water level gauge. In terms of color finish, this model variant is an absolute innovation, the water-blue plate has been combined with a black boiler housing and silver-colored engine plate. With a boiler capacity of 500cm3 this traditional double-acting engine has plenty of power to operate the dynamo mounted on the engine base plate and includes an extra groove on pulley for additional accessories. A handwheel control regulator allows for fine adjustment of steam to oil lubricator and brass piston and cylinder. Piston rods are manufactured of galvenized diecast metal. The condensed water is fed to a tray hidden behind the boiler house, allowing exhaust steam to vent from the chimney. The engine drives a dynamo which powers the miniature lamp post. The lamp is modeled on industrial lamps from the turn of the century and shines on the flywheel during operation. Base measures 13 3/4"L x 11 1/2"W x 12 5/8"H (including smoke stack).
