D430 - Steam Locomobile by Wilesco
Category : model steam engines




This locomobile was used around the turn of the century by farmers for threshing and ploughing. It was horse-drawn but was also frequently self-propelled and was capable of moving under its own steam at speeds of 3 to 4 kilometres per hour. This sophisticated steam model has a wealth of technical details and it looks good too in its livery of black combined with brass.

Brass boiler diameter 5,5 cms, length 23 cms. This engine has a partitioned smoke chamber at the front for the condensation and to allow the smoke to escape through the chimney, which is hinged in the middle. The sight glass acts as a water gauge. Reversible double acting cylinder with two flywheels of d=8 cms which can be operated in forward and reverse. Exact indicating pressure gauge, spring loaded safety valve, whistle with chain, governor (just for show), steam regulator, steam jet oiler, water drain tap, black varnished boiler house with gangways and ladder. The locomobile is driven by a chain and the front axle can be steered.

Operating time approx. 15 minutes. All parts are either painted or plated.
