A good project for a beginner or indeed a steam enthusiast who can use a screwdriver. There is no soldering required and no special tools or skills are needed.

This easy to assemble kit is a great example of a working live steam traction engine and is supplied with building instructions. Manufactured in England from heavy gauge steel and brass, it can be operated in forward and reverse and has a steerable front fork assembly (steering rod X74A sold separately). The brass boiler is fully pressure tested and is complete with water gauge glass and safety valve.

Great value for money and wonderfully educational making it an ideal introduction to a live steam model.

Now supplied with safe, non-toxic, environmentally friendly, ethanol based gel biofuel.

Recommended Age 14+ or with supervision.

Finished product approx: 10"x5.2"x7".

There are in excess of 60 separate parts, numbered and clearly identified with schematic assembly diagrams, bag and parts lists and accompanied by good assembly instructions. Depending upon the competence of the individual and the tools being used, it will take anything from 3 to 5 hours on average.

If you are seeking a hobby, that special gift or a unique collection, then working steam engines give pleasure to young and old alike and will be treasured for life.

Please note that rubber tyres are now included with the kit. The kit does not include a steering rod but it is available separately if required.

Mamod was founded in Birmingham, U.K. by Geoffrey Malins in the late 1930's. Mamod initially made model stationary live steam engines, progressing to road rollers, traction engines and roadsters over the years. Mamod's live steam railway first appeared on the market in 1981. Their reputation for excellence has been built up over 50 years. All models are tested to strict standards and safety valves control the working pressures of all units. The Mamod range is broad, obtainable in pre-assembled or kit form to give variety and choice.
