Company history and description of the companyWormar Warboys & Smart, Luton, England

The company Warboy Smart was founded in 1891 by Charles and Kate Smart in Luton.
Straw hats were produced.
In 1911 their son Bernard A. Smart entered the business.
From 1925 to 1927, the steam engines were probably produced in a joint venture between him and Geoffrey Bowman Jenkins. So far, five models are known that have been named A, B, C, D, and E.
The main selling point was the use of holes on the metal base at the same intervals as used by Meccano. As a result, these steam engines could be installed in Meccano models.
Model A has a single cylinder, runs 20 minutes and is 12.7 cm 5" high
Model B has a single cylinder, runs 30 minutes and is 14.6 cm 5,75" high, has a nickel-plated base and a gear shaft to hold the Meccano gearwheel
