Wilesco model help
« on: November 14, 2020, 05:44:39 pm »
Can anyone help ID this Wilesco steam engine model? All it says anywhere on it, is “Made in Germany” on the bottom. I assume that makes it pre-war?

Looks like a Wilesco D10 and most definitely post war.

 Wilesco, though the company is much older, started producing steam engines first in the 1950s, so this cannot be a pre-WWII engine.
