This is a working model steam engine based on a Brunel vertical boiler engine.
Powered by butane/propane, the gas tank is filled. Warm water is added to the boiler,
a glass water level sight allows you to see how full the boiler is. Lightly oil the engine in
preparation for starting. Open the gas valve slight and light the burner. The boiler heats up
and the pressure gauge starts to rise. Once up to pressure open up the steam valve and
give the flywheel a flick. The engine is away !
Comes with metal tracks (16 curved, 8 straight) to create an oval circuit.
