Product Type: Steam/ Live Steam Sub-Type: PADDLE STEAMER ENGINE

 DIAGONAL PADDLE STEAMER ENGINE BASED ON EDGAR WESTBURY DESIGN WITH FEATHERED PADDLES.

This auction/sale is for a Diagonal Paddle Steamer Engine as shown in photo.
Approx. Dimensions - Length: 11"   Height: 7.25"   Width: 13"
Twin Cylinder with Reversing Gear.   Bore:  0.75"  Stroke 1.5"

Paddles: 6" dia. x 3" wide - Feathered.
This engine was described in Model Engineer Vol No. 113-114
                                          
Condition:-

Appears
Very Good. Runs well on air but not tested with steam.
This engine comes from a modeller's collection and I have simply just cleaned it up.
Reversing is achieved very simply by manually operating the valve gear. A reversing handwheel can be fitted if required.
A feedpump can also be installed by fitting an eccentric where the main shaft is coupled together in the centre.
I understand that all the parts for this model, including handwheel and feedpump, are available from
Reeves Model Engineers.
Photos show some nuts missing from valve covers. These will be replaced before dispatching. Only removed to facilitate cleaning.
The model is presently on a wooden display board and does not have any outer paddle pivots fitted. These are easily made if required. When fitted the feathering action of the paddle blades can be demonstrated.
Although this model runs well on air, i'm sure some further fine adjustment and improvements will be necessary.

This model can be seen running in both directions by going to the following YouTube link:
