Wilesco D16 steam engine - appears to be late'50s - early'60s vintage based on the handwheel and flyweight design. Tested with solid fuel tablets and it works (fuel not included).
Added a few drops of oil to the oiling hole and ran for 5 minutes. Does have some light spotty rust on the base legs near the bottoms. There may be some items that are missing pieces or have been restored / modified such that an expert would notice it, but it escapes my scrutiny based on my limited knowledge. These came from my Dad, a long-time train collector, vintage radio collector, and amateur radio operator (since the 1950s).
