This relatively large toy steam engine was made in South Melbourne by the Weldon Manufacturing Co around 1950. They were also sold under the 'Monarch' name.

Simply oil the moving parts, pour half a cup of warm water into the boiler, pour some methylated spirits into the burner and light the wick. After a few minutes warming up steam will start to hiss from the joints around the engine and when given a spin the engine will begin to run.

 

The model in constructed in brass and copper with a diecast base.

 

The flywheel is 70mm in diameter.

 

The whole model stands 260mm tall, the base is 110mm in diameter. It weighs approx 1.2kg.
