Steam roller with chassis and bodywork made from galvanised steel and painted. The boiler and engine parts are brass. The boiler is 1 1/4" diameter x approx 3 1/2" long. It's heated by a single wick meths burner, which is built into the chassis. The meths tank is the bottom section of the bunker. The rest of the bunker serves as a filling funnel. The boiler is filled through a plug in the side of the boiler. There is no water level indication or overflow plug. Steam is fed through a very short pipe to the bottom of the port face of the oscillating cylinder. The cylinder is a single acting oscillating cylinder, 9mm bore x 20mm stroke. The port face is lubricated by a wick type oiler. The piston has to be oiled manually. The piston is connected to a simple crank on one end of the crankshaft. The other end has a 2" diameter brass flywheel and a small gear. This forms the first part of a three stage gearing transmission to one of the rear rolls. The total gear ratio is about 100:1. There is a simple clutch, formed by a sliding gear and operated by a lever and linkage. The front rolls are steered by means of a traditional worm gear and chain arrangement.
