Weeden 3

Quite possibly my oldest Weeden, this a Weeden 3. These were manufactured from
1894 to 1940. Very interesting construction, the whole engine sits on top of the boiler
and uses a quarter turn to locate. The boiler is brass but the firebox is steel. Missing
it's burner, smokestack, safety valve weight and whistle top.

Here it is after stripping and cleaning.

Reassembly complete.
