This is one of two models made by Hobran engineering for Swan. The boiler is 2 1/2" diameter x 3 1/4" long and is made of copper. It has a safety valve, whistle, steam regulator and a try-cock for water level determination. It is fired by a three wick meths burner.

Steam is fed from the regulator to the top of the port face of the oscillating cylinder. The brass cylinder is 5/8" bore x 3/4" stroke. Unusually, the piston is hollow. The engine frame is cast alloy. The crankshaft has a disk crank at one end and a 1 5/8" diameter cast alloy flywheel at the other. The flywheel incorporates a 11/32" diameter pulley. Exhaust steam is fed to the base of the chimney, which is square section with a printed brick effect finish.
