The gauge works fine too. There is a built in generator and lamp post with a working lamp.I made a small repair to the lamp arm. I included a copy of the instructions from the Wilesco web site, and some other info I put together. I included a new box of Esbit fuel, a bottle of Wilesco steam engine oil, and a 250ml (8 ounce) incremented fill bottle. I tested this engine and it ran great.
Please view all the pictures. What you see, is what you get.
Since they are pre-packed, I cannot combine engines. The post office has lost or destroyed three of my items since February causing me considerable loss.
This comes across as a scam to me. I retired a few years ago and have always enjoyed working in my shop.I have been intrigued with steam engines since I was very young. One of the things on my bucket list was to learn how to operate a metal lathe and a mill. When I retired these two things came together for me and I have been refurbishing toy steam engines ever since. From the time I started till now, I have refurbished several hundred engines.
I test every engine before I sell it. I get great pleasure in bringing these guys back to life and knowing that folks are getting a good running steamer. I was a carpenter for many years, so I also make the Cyprus plaques as well. Sometimes I do well sometimes not.
