104 Live Steam Locomotive rare item with no reserve. 104 butane fires live steam engine. All is ok working condition and the engine picks up a good amount of speed for the size. This engine also comes with full working reverse, so not just the reverse in the pistons but actual crank webbing reverse gear.The engine is well oiled and functions lovely. Manual speed control is in the cab and pressure gauge as well.
The track in the picture is not included in the price but if you would like it let me know. This info was provided from a fellow Ebayer. What you have listed is a model of a Baldwin locomotive that would have been built from a machinist kit produced by Argyle Locomotives in Australia. These were supplied as a kit of parts that required machining and silver soldering skills. They were also supplied as full built models in 45mm gauge of 32mm gauge with full Stevenson's valve gear, as this one has, or simple slip eccentric.I supplied the artwork to Argyle Locomotives for the laser cutting and photo etching. I have a 32mm gauge example with full Stevenson's valve gear and radio control.
Since this item is being listed as used, it will show signs of wear which to the best of my knowledge have been shown in the pictures. Feel free to send me any questions or comments. Also since this is not considered a toy, no liability on my end of something goes wrong due to miss use of the engine.
