WEEDEN JACKETED STEAM ENGINES

Many of the Weeden boilers were covered with steel jackets to prevent heat loss.

As models sell on Ebay I am now listing the selling price, since many factors come into play with items up for auction this can only be taken as a very general value. I will try to give a basic description of the condition from the information on the listing. A range of prices will be selected, to save space duplicate prices, within a few dollars, for similar engines will not be listed.

Weeden No. 10


Thanks Dave L.

The Weeden No. 10 is advertised in their catalogue as the biggest and strongest engine ever made by us. It has a brass boiler covered in a sheet iron jacket. The frame and flywheel are made of iron, all other parts are brass. The design of many Weeden engines tended to be altered by the manufacturer over time so there are often differences in earlier and later models of the same number. This is evidenced in the photos below, thanks to Ken T.
