Steam Wagon arrived
« on: June 12, 2019, 10:29:02 am »
Just received my Mamod Steam Wagon. Probably older than I expected. Paintwork not too bad though. The steam pipes are very dull looking, what are the pipes and cylinder made of? I want to clean them up but not with the wrong stuff.
Cannot run it yet as I am waiting for the coal to arrive  :D

Steam lines are copper and cylinder is brass. Any metal polish will do, I prefer Maas and Simichrome over Brasso.

Hope we get some pictures and video after the "coal" arrives  ;)

Thanks for confirming that. Will have to have a look at some metal polish.
