It is 13 inches tall to the top of the smokestack. The base is cast iron. The paint all looks original. I don't see any weld marks from repairs.
It has the EP logo plaque on the top steam valve, and the "Cosmos" model plaque on the base. I've never fired up a steam engine, so I don't know how well it works. Here's what I can observe: The water sight glass looks unbroken. The handle on the steam whistle moves, but I think it's supposed to have a wood handle coming off it the water valve/faucet below that does not turn.
If you turn the big flywheel all the shafts go up and down on th front, and the side shafts that drive the water pump also move freely. The 4 oil cups on the front all have a little oil residue in them That big black counter weight on the side with the water vale moves freely.
The handle on the water vale above the pump moves freely. The burner is very cool looking - don't know if it's original. There's a number cast into the underside of the base, looks like 160.
