Boiler test rig - stock code 2029

Station Road Steam's very own boiler test rig, from the early days. Ah, the tales this good old pump could tell (mainly, there's an awful lot of leaky old boilers about!).

0-300 psi gauge, pump, separate fitting for testing model pressure gauges against the main gauge, relief valve, water tank. all in working order (although it doesn't look that pretty!).

Complete with a selection of fittings to connect to 5/16 x 32 and x 40 unions. The model pressure gauge shown on test is not included (it went in the bin about two minutes after this picture was taken, having failed test).

If you play with steam locomotives, traction engines or old stationary boilers, you need one of these!
