I need your help please

Post by crob09 » Wed Nov 23, 2011 10:37 pm

Hi, please check out these pictures http://aboutsteam.com/index.php?cID=82 I am on a quest to figure out what this engine was used for, how old it is, or any information on it.

Thanks for any help!

look here
http://www.weedensteam.com/weeden14.html it was built as a toy.

the two popcorn wagon engines i have seen are larger and have a seperate boiler. they drove both the toy figure who turned the nut roasting drum and the stirrer in the popcorn pan. i worked on one a few years back along with several other trades people. this is one i can get pics of . i believe it was in lastyear pendleton roundup parade.

If the one in the video is the one that you are refering to, It is a toy engine. I think built by Weeden. The most it could be used for would to maybe power an erector set, or various toys that are built for these engines.
