Stuart S50 steam plant - stock code 9837

A Stuart S50 steam plant with gas-fired 500 water tube boiler.

An older model in rather scruffy condition, it needs a cosmetic overhaul - a worthwhile project, it was nicely put together in the first place, with tiled engine room floor and pipework neatly run through the base.

There is a water tank with hand pump, the boiler is fired by a ceramic burner installed in the base, with refillable gas tank.
