Mamod live steam engine models have been made in Birmingham, England since 1936.
These superbly engineered models are both entertaining and educational for both the young and not so young.
Each model burns solid waxed fuel to boil water (distilled recommended) to produce motion within a piston.
All our Mamod models are located in Australia and dispatched immediately. You don’t need to wait many weeks or take any risks purchasing these overseas. Our models are shipped with the fuel supplied – which is impossible for overseas sellers to do legally due to postal requirements.
All models are backed and supported by the Australian agent for Mamod with full expert technical support provided if required.
Suitable for children 14 years and over
