    This is my first live steam antique toy, its a workshop featuring a polishing/sharpening machine, and a drilling machine, powered by a double action steam cylinder, the boiler is heated by a alcool burner below it, i have fired it several times since i got it, its amazing to see the power and rotation it reaches with such a small boiler.
    The parts are mixed, the workshop machines are probably Wilesco, the engine is not marked, but it looks like a Fleischmann.
    Now i need to get my hands on a Bowman live steam locomotive...

      Great post. I can't tell the mfg. It looks like a quality piece, so it might be a Weeden as bobby725 suggests.
      Aren't steam engines great to watch, even if they are run on air? (although not as impressive as they are when run on steam).
      I listed a few, check them out, and keep posting them when you find anymore.
