More mobiles,
P.S. You are welcome anytime @Jim but keep in mind that you might be kept in WA for eternity the way the border closures are these days, even Clive Palmer couldn’t defeat the laws on this.

Well at least I would have a lot of toys to play with :)

Walt would you happen to know if these Wilesco's were ever sold with a different smoke stack than yours below?

I really can’t say Jim, maybe there was an earlier model with the conical front axle support with different chimney base.
Can we see a photo of yours or see why you ask?

Got this engine recently, the stack doesn't look Wilesco to me? Its built really well, quite ornate and heavy (unlike the ridiculous plastic parts on these Wilescos).

I am 99% sure that is not original Jim, but I think it looks really nice on there without the canopy  8)

Does dress it up Nick, the canopy is a bit of a PITA when filling it up, oiling andoperating it I can see now why a lot of folks take them off.

A better shot of the funny stuff and see there is room for one or two more, a whole shelf in fact. [ Guests cannot view attachments ]

100% sure that is not original. Bought two some years back, black with brass trim, blue with brass trim.
They do look better.
