Notes: Model B-30, horizontal style boiler, built approx. 1921-1941. The most plentiful of the cast iron Empire toy steam engines based on the 20 year production run and freqency of seeing them on eBay, where they come up for sale weekly. Solid cast iron base, brass engine components and nickeled brass boiler. Virtually the same engine as the B-31 which differs only by orienting the boiler vertically. Rivals early Jensens for robustness. Heated electrically.
