AstroMedia Steam Engine


New product

A steam engine made from cardboard, running with proper boiling steam - is that really possible? Oh yes!!!

See for yourself: this model not only looks great, it also works, happily chuff-chuffing away. The boiler, made from an aluminium tin, has a magnetic safety valve. The aluminium fire box underneath holds five tea lights. Both are enclosed in a safety cage made from galvanised wire mesh.
