I wonder how many of these diminutive generic steam engines have been sold around the world? This is the 'Caradoc' from Accucraft. I bought mine nearly 5 years ago and it is still in it's original unmodified manual condition albeit with a few kilometres on the clock.
Apart from it's well-published quirks mine has proven to be a very reliable trustworthy machine. For anyone entering the world of live steam it gets my recommendation for value.
I know it's not continental looking but there are some parts on order to give it a 'euro makeover' soon.
