It has been in my family for a long time and was usually fired up around Christmas. One of the first times we used it we stripped the threads in one of the holes in the boiler so a substitute bolt was placed into the boiler. It can be seen in some of the photographs.It is not the original bolt. We have been using it this way for a very long time and it runs great. The original box is included but is very damaged. The cardboard is brittle and ripped. It is too bad because the artwork is really cool.
It could be framed but it would have the look of something in bad condition. The item "WILESCO STEAM ENGINE" is in sale since Thursday, October 22, 2015.
