Mamod SE2 - Circa 1958

This is one of my current projects a Mamod SE2 from about 1958 and it's had a hard life!

Bought this one off ebay with the USE for £37.

Ok, here it is after restoration. I decided not to remove it's dents, badges of honour!
There is a video of it under steam here.

It runs ok although not particularly quickly, probably due to the wear in the piston.
It does however have the best whistle of all the engines in my collection!
Update: Turns out there was a partial blockage in the steam exhaust, that's been removed and it now goes like a rocket!
