Not sure what its function is - maybe a distillery? It is all mounted on a base which measures 22 by 17 inches. The whole plant weighs about 33 pounds. There are some loose lines , valves , whistle included as seen in the 2nd and 3rd photos.These appear to match up where things are missing on the plant. Looks like a sheared fitting on top of the boiler as well as one inside the water tower - both appear to be simple fitting replacements. It is also minus a chimney and a belt between the engine and electric motor. Other than those apologies the rest of the plant appears to be in pretty good shape - some signs of age - some corrosion on exterior boiler supports as seen in photos. I do not see any cracks or breaks. Everything appears to rotate free and function as it should. First box would be 22 inches long , 18 inches wide , 8 inches high and weigh 6 pounds. Second and Third boxes will be 14 x 14 x 14 inches and weigh 15 pounds each. Dimensions and weight for one large box would be 24 inches long , 18 inches wide , 16 inches high and weigh around 35 pounds with packaging.
